College Admissions and Thanksgiving Menus


Preparing your menu for admissions is a lot like preparing for Thanksgiving.  It takes time and effort to prepare scrumptious and eye-pleasing presentations.  If you are thinking about Thanksgiving, let me share my menu with you.  If you are thinking about college admission, I’ll give you my menu for that as well!


Here is my regular Thanksgiving Menu. Each item will take planning, and it has to be carefully timed to be presented at just the right moment while it’s still warm – or cool.  I make as much as possible ahead of time.  Some things, like thawing a turkey, take a LOT of advanced planning.


Advanced Planning

  • Vegetable Tray
