Our New Orleans Thanksgiving Menu

This year I am hosting Thanksgiving. The task feels daunting because I have alot to live up to when it comes to the cooks in the family. My mother-in-law is from Cajun country and cooking comes naturally to her. She never uses a recipe and makes delicious meals all the time (just ask her son). This year I want to prove that my cooking skills have drastically improved since I got married and the days of just baked chicken and steamed broccoli are over. So here is the overzealous, New Orleans inspired menu I have planned.

  • Roasted Turkey
  • Fried Turkey
  • Shrimp & Mirliton Dressing
  • Oyster Dressing
  • Sweet Potato Casserole
  • Chicken and Andouille Gumbo
  • Green Bean Casserole
  • Cauliflower & Cheese
  • Roasted Asparagus
  • Orange Glazed Spinach Salad


  • Sweet Potato Pie
  • Pecan Pie
  • Pumpkin Cream Cheese Roll
  • Bread Pudding
