Gobble, gobble! 

The Thanksgiving meal prep-work has begun!

Dear readers,

Allow me to be the first to wish you and yours the happiest Thanksgiving!  I would love, nothing more, than to hear about your plans for the day-of and, most importantly, what will be served on your holiday table.  

As for me?  Well, I'll be spending my Thanksgiving as a first-time hostess, surrounded by eight dear friends and my lil' sister, who flew in from Los Angeles this morning.  Here's a look at what I'm serving - recipes to follow:

*Starred-items will be made by my guests


  • Cold chile-con-queso (dip), homemade tostados
  • Puff pastry-wrapped brie, four-fruits preserves


  • Pan-sautéed turkey breast cutlets, homemade gravy
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Brisket
  • Southern green-bean casserole
  • *Dana’s potatoes
  • *Ceci’s stuffing
  • "White trash" pistachio fruit salad
  • Biscuits, butter and preserves


  • *Pumpkin pie, apple-crumb pie


Read it & eat...and may your bellies be filled with an abundance of deliciousness,

The Lunch Belle

That chile con queso sounds awesome! I'd love to see a recipe for it :) We are doing a korean thanksgiving out of the momofuku cookbook since im just not a turkey person-so it will be a pork belly-kimchee-miso corn fest! Happy thanksgiving!
