Our Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is quite a production in my house, and we've already begun with:

Buttermilk Cupcakes with Chocolate Icing

However, not since I really was craving a particular kind of buttercream, they were frosted with this:

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Excellent on both counts.  The cupcakes are moist without being soggy, and the addition of milk / cream (in this case, used half and half) makes a huge difference in the buttercream.

This is the full menu plan for Thanksgiving:

Honeybaked Ham Turkey (none of us are huge turkey fans, so this delicious purchased option is fine)
Hines Gravy (ditto)
Cranberry Fruit Conserve
Campbell's Green Bean Casserole
Sweet Potatoes With Blue Cheese and Walnuts
Perfect Golden Mashers
Sage, Sausage and Apple Dressing
Maggie Mahoney's Turnips
Ginger Carrots
Maple Pecan Bread
Cranberry Harvest Muffins
Pumpkin Pie (purchased, because only my Mom really likes it)
Cinnamon Ice Cream
Cinnamon-Cornbread Blueberry Cobbler

The last two recipes have already featured on this blog at some point ... and it's me, aaaall me.
