Julia Child Thanksgiving

I love Julia Child. I love her because she was unconventional and fabulous and walked to the beat of her own drummer (even when there was no drummer playing.)

With Thanksgiving planning in full effect, I couldn't help but look up WWJCD (What Julia Child Would Do) in a Thanksgiving situation.

Here's what I found:

Roast Turkey: Most of her technique is pretty classic, but she does add a twist with a slow-simmered giblet gravy.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes: Regular mashed taters are fine, but Julia knew long ago that a little garlic would make them divine.

Stuffed Pumpkin: Rather than stuffing your turkey, you could stuff and roast a nice, orange pumpkin.

Dressing: Julia preferred to keep the dressing out of the turkey, so pull out a casserole dish for this one -- or the pumpkin above.

Brussels Sprouts Browned with Cheese: A favorite among many.

Apple Tart: When the meal is good and done, wrap it up with a classic apple tart.

And don't forget the wine!

Yay for the weekend!
