Thanksgiving Planning

by Patricia Eddy on November 6, 2009

We’ve got just under 3 weeks until Thanksgiving and now is the time to kick your planning into high gear.

I hope you’ve ordered your Thanksgiving turkey already, but if you haven’t, you still have just a few options. Growing Things and River Farm at the University District Farmers Market still had turkeys left for order last weekend. Get there early tomorrow if you want one.

Bill the Butcher was still advertising turkeys online earlier in the week as well.

Now is the time to start planning your menu. What sides will you serve? Appetizers? Local wines?

Sweet potatoes purchased this week from Alm Hill Gardens should last until Thanksgiving.

Lopez Island Vineyards will be at the University District Farmers Market this weekend for your local wine purchases.

For appetizers, consider oysters. Taylor Shellfish has oysters (shucked and in the shell). They are actually very reasonable when you buy them in the shell. Ask Oyster Bill to show you how to shuck them. Or branch out (like we’re planning) and get some Geoduck! It makes excellent sashimi. We’ll have a recipe for that soon.

Are there types of side dishes you’d like us to feature here over the next few weeks? Stay tuned next week for our pumpkin pie recipe and a second stuffing recipe.
