Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving Preparation

After several days of Thanksgiving planning, prepping and cooking, I woke up today energized and eager to dive into the day’s tasks.  I’m not sure why I love Thanksgiving so much.  Perhaps it’s because I’ll have 18 of my close friends arriving at my house this evening to celebrate.  With Spotify streaming, drinks flowing, and a plethora of yummy bites around, it’s almost guaranteed to be a fun, memorable evening.  Or perhaps it’s because Thanksgiving is the one day of the year that really celebrates food.  People coming together to give thanks over a table full of food.  My menu below is definitely not traditional; however, many of the dishes are derivatives of Thanksgiving classics. I hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving :)

A quick note on the photography in this post.  All of the images were taken with my iPhone.  Some altered in Instagram.  I’ve been posting these photos all week on Twitter using the hashtag #KKTday2011 (short for Kitchen Konfidence Thanksgiving).  I urge you to go check out the other photos!  I will continue to post for most of today, so please come say hello.  Continue reading for my Thanksgiving 2011 menu.

Thanksgiving 2010

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Tonight, 18 guests will be arriving at my house for Thanksgiving dinner.  I couldn’t be more excited!  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays throughout the year.  I am so thankful for my loving family and friends. I also wanted to thank all of the loyal Kitchen Konfidence readers.  I launched Kitchen Konfidence in July 2010 and I never thought it would reach this level of readership so quickly.  I truly appreciate all of your comments, likes, love and feedback.

Since I’ve been so busy prepping and cooking over the past several days, I haven’t had the time to update KK this week.  I wanted to take a moment to post my Thanksgiving 2010 lineup.  Recipes are available upon request.

Please note that I will be tweeting live T-Day updates all day today on Twitter.  Check them out: @brandiego.  If you would like to join the party, include #kktday2010 in your tweet.

Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving.  Here’s the menu:
