Menus for the Season

November 27, 2011

Have no fear Grill Boy & Baker Girl have not fallen into their summer slump of forgetting to blog.  Merely they have been swamped with the reality of November…preparing for Friend’s Thanksgiving & Thanksgiving. The culinary duo  will continue to update the blog every Sunday night, especially since they have fallen in love with the New England Patriots Games with DVR and blogging at the same time.  (By the way that was a great little interception bu Molden # 27 against the Philadelphia Eagles).  Sunday’s really just turn out to be a really nice day to hang out and get such things accomplish.  Now last year Grill Boy & Baker Girl explained all of the fun ways to brine a turkey, make a chutney brie appetizer, delicious carrots and of course scalloped corn and pecan pie.  This year they thought they would share the menus from both Friends Thanksgiving 2011 and a wonderful Grill Boy Family Thanksgiving. Grill Boy often searches the internet for menu ideas when he and Baker Girl have people over so he others might be interested on what goes together and what to have around the table.
