Thanksgiving: Live-Blogging My Moms

Folks, if you are responsible for Thanksgiving dinner, or some portion of it, don't fret. Even though all the hysterical housewife commercials are airing, and the hotlines are opening up, I urge you not to have a cow. My mom is going to hold hands with you all week.

The cooking begins on Sunday, and I will be documenting each step of the process, beginning with the stuffing. Now, you should know, my mom is not just any great mom-cook. She is the editor of many cookbooks, and the author of some as well, including one entitled Stuffings, so you can count on her.

Here is her menu, if you want to follow along.

Roquefort crisps Spiced Walnuts

Celery Root with Braised Shallots Soup

Roasted Turkey Stuffing Gravy Brussels sprouts Butternut squash Pureed potatoes Glazed Onions Fresh cranberry relish Cranberry-red pepper chutney

Caramel/pecan pie Pumpkin pie
