Thanksgiving in October

It honestly was a complete coincidence that I decided to prepare this dinner tonight on Canadian Thanksgiving! Mr. KB took the red eye in from Cali last night and this is the kind of dinner I like to eat when I am beat down and tired. I don't usually cook dinners like this, but it's fun to do every once in awhile. Here's the menu:

Roasted Turkey Breast
Sausage Stuffing
Mashed Potatoes
Apple Crisp with Vanilla Ice Cream

The spread...... (Please note I never plate everything up like this and put it on the table either. Again it was very nice but WAY too many dishes to wash at the end of the meal, so tomorrow we'll be back to the buffet style at the stove top!)

A recipe.....

Apple Crisp from Susan Branch's Heart of the Home Cookbook - so good and perfect for me because I stink at making pie crust!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Peel and slice 4- 5 apples
Place them into a buttered casserole dish

in a separate bowl mix

1/2 cup of oatmeal
1/2 cup of flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup of softened butter
3/4 cup of packed brown sugar

and crumble all over the top.
Bake for 30 minutes and serve warm with vanilla ice cream! I am off to the gym to work off this fabulous meal :) xo, Brie

I am so jealous- I wish I were at your house for dinner! (PS. Did you get the email I sent to you yesterday?)

Everything sounds and looks delicious! I can't wait for stuffing on Thanksgiving. Might make some sooner!!

Oh that sounds so good. Thanksgiving is my very favorite holiday. Maybe I should celebrate a little early at my house too.
