Thanksgiving 2010

We were able to go up to our cabin in northern Wisconsin over the Thanksgiving holiday.  My mom drove up from Illinois.  Luckily, we had 3 inches of fresh, white snow.  It was very beautiful.

We had a great Thanksgiving meal and it is amazing the things you can do in a limited kitchen.  Although, as you may guess, we have more up there than most people who have north woods cabins do.

The menu consisted of a brined roast turkey prepared using a method I heard about from Martha Stewart.  The turkey is covered in cheesecloth soaked in butter and white wine, then basted with the mixture every 30 minutes.  This method makes the juiciest turkey you will ever have.  We also had red peppers stuffed with mashed cheddar potatoes and then baked.  There was roasted yellow squash along with a Brussells Sprouts gratin.  I found a recipe for stuffing made with, of all things, White Castle hamburgers.  Those who are familar with White Castle's will understand.  Very interesting!

I have attached photos of the Thanksgiving meal. So, stay tuned this week for all the great recipes from this holiday!  I hope you all had a great holiday as well.


  1. Sounds like an amazing meal Steve; looking forward to seeing the recipes!


  2. That sounds fabulous! I've seen Martha do that brining method on her show - always wondered if it really made a difference. it sounds like it does!! :)
