We've been so busy sharing symposium news via our Tuesday blog posts that we're going to have to hurriedly catch you up with all the cooking that's been happening over at The Communal Skillet.  Though our Skillet friends weren't able to join us in Oxford, it looks like they've been eating well on their own.  Here's what's been happening in the kitchen:

  • Ambrosia Fruit Salad (easy: open cans, mix, chill)
  • Country Cooked Green Beans with New Potatoes (a holiday classic with fresh beans and salt pork)
  • Creamy Corn Pudding (don't skimp on the eggs to make it souffle-like)
  • Applesauce Cake with Black Walnuts (use homemade applesauce to make it best)
  • Vegetable Soup (with Coca-Cola as a secret ingredient!)
  • Sauerkraut Stuffed Smoked Turkey (you'll need 8 hours here, so plan accordingly)

If you're in need of a Thanksgiving menu, this one's ready for you!  Just get the cookbook and go to work.
