"There are four unbroken rules when it comes to Thanksgiving: there must be turkey and dressing, cranberries, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie."
'John Hadamuscin's Down Home' (1993)
Welcome to the November issue of Seasoned Cooking. It's Thanksgiving time and that means a lot is happening in the homes of cooks everywhere. Ingredients and cookware are being assembled. Recipes are being mixed and matched. Invitations are being sent to friends and loved ones. It's a busy time of the year and one filled with laughter, love and delicious food. Let us help you make it festive and low stress.
We begin with a look at beginning your day right. Get the height of autumn goodness with fruity, spiced oatmeal that's baked in a pumpkin. The Rise 'n Shine column includes this fantastic recipe that you'll want to make again and again. What's more, when you're done with your breakfast, you'll be left with perfectly roasted pumpkin that you can easily puree for other recipes. Speaking of which, you might want to consider that puree for the pumpkin mousse that's highlighted in the Happy Endings column. It's rich, delicious and super easy to make.
Making Thanksgiving run more smoothly is one of our goals in this month's issue. With that in mind, we're also offering you a selection of make-ahead side dishes in the Kitchen Focus column and asking you to share your favorite side dishes in the Seasoned Opinions column. And don't forget the turkey. Consider the honey turkey highlighted in Phil's International Flair. And if you are wanting some ideas about using pears in your entertaining plans, look no further than the Ingredient SpotLight column.
There is a lot more to be discovered in this issue. Enjoy it and share it with your friends. And don't forget to tell us about what you like and don't like by using our feedback forms in every article. Enjoy the opportunities to spend time with friends and loved ones that November brings and here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
