Cooking a big meal with someone really solidifies a relationship. Even if you’re cooking simultaneously but in all different kitchens (like this online seasonal holiday potluck)some how we all feel a little closer. Last year I cooked the big feast with my dear friend Anne. She taught me how to perfectly tie knots with dough for beautiful rolls and together we mastered several pies, side dishes, and took on the challenge of the most massive turkey I’ve ever bought, all for the cause of feeding our friends. We started a week or so ahead, prepping by making pie dough and freezing it, making cranberry sauce, and splitting up our grocery lists. Then on the day before we prepped veggies and make a schedule for the day of. On Thanksgiving day we cooked, sipped and sampled our way through creating a special meal. We talked all about our families Thanksgiving traditions, what we liked and what we didn’t and what we hope to change.

I think I’m going to make a habit of pre-Thanksgiving testing meals with friends! Aside from our online holiday potluck, this year a group of bloggers who all partner with our local grocery Harmons Grocery, got together for a in-person Thanksgiving feast. Our recipes we’re perfected, we shared a meal, and many photos were taken! All in the name of making this year’s Thanksgiving easy for our readers. And we’re not only giving you lots of recipe ideas today, we’re also giving away grocery money for the big feast.

For this Harmons Thanksgiving Feast, most of the actual cooking was done in advance but Si from A Bountiful Kitchen, Caroline from Armelle Blog, and I helped put the finishing touches on the meal for a complete spread. After whisking gravy, cutting herbs, and setting the table together, we all felt a more tightly knit as new friends. Food has a special way of doing that and cooking, even more so.

Here are all of the dishes that filled our table for our early Thanksgiving meal.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Chocolate Mousse Pie

Honey Whole Grain Rolls

Savory Sweet Potatoes with Bacon, Thyme and Cream

Easy Cranberry Orange Relish

Sausage Herb Stuffing

Sesame Green Beans with Bacon and Chestnuts

Si gave me an extra boost of confidence in my gravy making as she whisked up her gravy the exact way I do. She and I both like to place our turkey roasting pans, drippings and all, right over two burners on the stove. Then, add some stock and flour, maybe some extra seasonings, and you’re good to go. Here’s my full recipe for Turkey Gravywith one flavor boosting secret ingredient!

For this super easy cranberry sauce recipe, just pulse a whole orange (rind and all) in a food processor with a full bag of cranberries (they are available and on sale right now at Harmons) and 1 cup of sugar. Store the relish in the refrigerator for up to a week prior to the big meal. I like to put the relish in several jars so everyone has easy access along the table.
