    You don't say for what kind and size of gathering. If this were the
    menu for a small, sit down dinner I'd say it's clearly too many dishes
    and too many overlaps (3 uses of butternut squash plus an acorn
    squash; stuffed mushrooms and mushroom dressing). If it's what you
    plan to put out for a largeish buffet it looks fine. I wouldn't
    expect anyone to load plates with everything offered, so the almost-
    duplications wouldn't be a problem. My one quibble is I'd serve the
    apples and cheese last, not first.

    In that case, I hope you cut your menu at least in half.

    I can relate to wanting to pamper a special someone, but that is way
    overboard.

    Consider giving that person a massage in stead :-) It would be a lot
    less work.

    Much of it is simple make ahead sides, and I like having leftovers
    anyway. I have a 19.97# turkey in the freezer for this too.

    Good question, this is still V0.1. It's also not on the 26th either.

    I'd cut anything heavy from the appetizer list, like the brown bread
    and the cheeses. How about just a shrimp cocktail and or a fruit cup?

    It sounds a bit overwhelming for host-cook and guests alike. Give
    yourself a break and eliminate at least 5 items.

    It sounds lovely but ... roasted asparagus? For TGiving? Easter yes,
    but TGiving - no. Or maybe you live in a place where asparagus is
    seasonal in November. How about roasted brussels sprouts instead?

    Two soups seems overkill to me.

    That tart sounds utterly lovely!

    We have lovely asparagus on sale here at the moment (from Peru).

    Version 0.1 of the menu i.e. still in development. Version 1.0 will be
    the final menu that the shopping list and production schedule will be
    based on.

    Easy or no, I think it's excessive. How many are you sitting? Six
    vegetables? Two soups? Squash/pumpkin four times?

    If you like it, Pete, knock yourself out and as a kindness to your
    guests provide cots for postprandial naps.

    As long as you are still in beta, that's okay. Just try and trim it down
    a bit.

    Quality, not quantity should be the primary scope for any meal. The
    exception for that, is you have to feed a whole bunch of little ones.
    Than the quantity rule kicks in :-)

    I like that idea.

    After the butternut squash in the appetizers, I'd cut the acorn squash from
    the first course. Of course, that doesn't preclude you from coming up with
    something else for the wild rice and cranberries. How did you plan to
    incorporate the cranberries? How sweet and how cooked do you want them to
    be? Truth be told, I'd be full at the end of the first course, the way this
    menu is set up!

    I'd recommend serving the popovers during the main course rather than during
    the first course. That way, diners can fill the popovers with all the
    goodies served during that course, all of which sound like better popover
    fillings than the items in the first course. Also, as others have pointed
    out, you're being a bit heavy-handed with the winter squash, and the
    mushrooms in the dressing this course are only a minor deviation from the
    dressing in the mushrooms during the appetizers.


    > Dessert:
    > Pumpkin creme brulee
    > Apple pie
    > Cinnamon ice cream
    > Coffee


    PERSONALLY (and I'm sure I'll take some heat for this), I'd omit the pumpkin
    pie because of the butternut squash in the appetizers. I'd make a pecan pie
    instead, and serve it with slightly-whipped cream.

    I also agree with the sentiment that you're making too much food if you're
    just cooking for two people. I understand that you like leftovers, but
    wouldn't the asparagus be better if you cooked it fresh for Sunday brunch?
    Wouldn't Friday's dinner be more enjoyable if you had items which had NOT
    been served the day before? Why not make the corn pudding then, instead of
    on Thanksgiving? Why not make the acorn squash dish fresh at one of those
    "leftover" dinners? (Refrigeration tends to do bad things to cooked squash.)

    Naturally, you're completely at liberty to cook exactly the menu that you
    posted. It's not horrible by any stretch of the imagination; all the
    concerns I've mentioned have been quite minor. What's important is that both
    you and your dinner partner enjoy the occasion, and that can happen
    regardless of what's on the table.

    The stuffed acorn squash is a recipe from Epicurius I've used before.
    Butternut and acorn squashes are fairly different flavor wise.

    I figure the popovers will spill over from the first course anyway. I
    expect they will be good for wiping up the last of the soup.

    I think a stuffed mushroom appetizer is a preview of the dressing /
    stuffing that is part of the main course.

    The whole menu is for Sunday anyway, Thursday is not convenient.
