Before everyone leaves Internetland to spend time with their family and friends for Thanksgiving, I wanted to post a quick note to wish you all a safe, pleasant holiday full of great food and memories with your friends and family.

What’s on your menu for Thanksgiving? Here’s mine:

  • Ham w/ Peach-Ginger Glaze
  • Grilled Spice-Rubbed Cornish Hens
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Roasted New Potatoes with Pancetta and Garlic
  • Kale
  • Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
  • Yeast Rolls
  • Cosmopolitan Cranberry Sauce
  • Sweet Potato Cheesecake
  • Red Velvet Cake

 Yes, it’s a lot – but nothing The Fab Foodie can’t handle! Some quick words of thanks before I go:

  • A special thank you to my mom for commenting on all my posts (when she reads them). Let’s see what she’ll say about this one!
  • Thank you to my favorite sous chef, who persevered through splitting my Cornish hens even though the sound of cracking bones was a little too much for him;
  • A HUGE thank you to Harris Teeter and Shoppers Food Warehouse for short lines and having everything on my shopping list so I didn’t have to run all over creation;
  • thank you to the young man working the counter at the liquor store who ID’d me when I was trying to buy miniatures for my cranberry sauce. He said I looked like I was in high school! blushing You made my day!
  • Thank you to the Epicurious app on my iPhone for providing me with the recipe for the Cosmopolitan Cranberry sauce. It is absolutely FANTASTIC. Check it out here:
  •  Finally, (and most important!) thanks to all of you who take time to read my tales of foodie discovery. Thanks for taking this crazy ride with me!

Happy Thanksgiving!
