Jamie & Krysten's Thanksgiving Feast

There will be pictures and recipes tomorrow, but for now.... the menu:

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.


Happy Thanksgiving!

Nice lineup-- fried okra is a great touch in my book and notches it that much higher on the Thanksgiving Zahmeter.
