    Hey folks , here are the holidays again and its a busy time of year for all of us who enjoy preparing good food. What do you have in mind as far as your menus are concerned for
    Thanksgiving , Christmas and New Years ? We can really get some good ideas here as there is a lot of talent on this web site .
    I work at a small hospital and I will be doing about 300 meals
    ( Patients and Staff ) for each of these holidays.
    My administrator wants me to stay close to tradition so for Thanksgiving I am doing Roast Turkey , Cornbread Dressing ,
    Dirty Redskin Mashed Potatos , Giblet Gravy , Green Bean Amandine , Assorted Dinner Rolls , Cranberry Sauce , Finished
    with Pumpkin Pie Topped with Whipped Cream.
    Christmas will be Roast Prime Rib Au Jus , Vegetarian Lasagna ,
    Twice Baked Potatoes , Stir Fried Vegetable Medly , Relish Trays ,
    Assorted Dinner Rolls , Relish Trays , and a Medly of Cheesecakes.
    I have not thought about New Years yet so maybe I can get pick up somthing from one of you . Thanks for all your tips and Happy Holidays .

    My "menu" will only be for two people, but here is what I have so far:

    Fruit and cheese plate -pears, apples, MANCHEGO, Havarti, and Brie
    Wild Mushroom Lasagna
    Stuffed Acorn Squash

    Cheese fondue, chocolates, and champagne (it's a tradition)

    My holiday will be consumed by work but here is our fall harvest menu:

    Leek Tart

    Salad of mixed greens w/ pears and gorganzola w/ a pomegranite vinegrette

    Turban squash soup (less sweet than acorn which suits me)

    Tourndoes of beef on wild rice croquettes w/ a forest mushroom ragout

    and a Great (if I do say so myself) chocolate terrine w/ ollieberry sauce
