Cajun Thanksgiving Round Up

With Thanksgiving only a few days away, I'm checking my list to make sure that I have all of the ingredients to prepare the big feast for family and friends. I'll be making this wonderful Sausage Cornbread Dressing for a side dish, and stuffing the turkey with my Oyster Cornbread Stuffing as well as all of my family's usual favorite appetizers, sides, and desserts. (links below) Cest bon, cher!

Hi lovely lady.
All the food looks so yummy. I wish I could copy this for this Thanksgiving dinner. I hope you have a wonderful Thanskgiving with your family from my home to yours.

Long time since I came back on your blog; pleased to see that in the interim southern food is still very much alive and well. Have a good Thanksgiving. My wife is American, but over here in the UK it doesn't have the same resonance.

Pass the creole rice dressing please. Happy Thanksgiving.

Michelle B said...

My MIL always makes the dressing and it's always chicken/cornbread. Don't get me wrong, it's good and a dish I look forward to. But I think I would like your sausage dressing more. (Don't tell her!) Thank you for sharing!

Why oh why did I start this wretched diet? It all looks SO good.

One of your chicken recipes is simmering away but wish I had that Bananas Foster for a bit of dessert -- not too much as Thanksgiving left its, ahem, bulge. Hope you had a beautiful Thanksgiving as well -- oh, but the seasons take forever to get here then go by so quickly!
