There will be pictures and recipes tomorrow, but for now....
First off, we're not having turkey. Brad is marinating and smoking a large slab of beef brisket... maybe nontraditional, but YUM~ Anyway, no one ever accused either Jamie or Krysten of being conventional, now did they, hmmm?
Krysten's friend Stephanie is bringing the relish tray, and she promised a trip to the olive store; the mere thought thrills me to the core.
The goods: stuffed mushrooms, cornbread-n-biscuit stuffing (even though it's technically "dressing" since we are not putting it in a bird; how Southern are we?), fried okra, creamed corn, garlicky green beans, roasted cauliflower, homemade cranberry sauce, and for dessert: pumpkin cheesecake, pecan pralines, and buttermilk chess pie.
