Thanksgiving without an oven! – Part I

I love it! I know that sounds crazy. A couple things. First, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! It’s about all the good things- food, family, entertaining, and most importantly relaxing. Which of course means I’m always up for hosting Thanksgiving! I’m willing, if not eager, to be up late baking pies and up early preparing a turkey.

The second is that many people without an oven would not pick that year to host Thanksgiving. I on the other hand was possibly even more excited about hosting Thanksgiving this way because it was a challenge. How are we going to pull this off?!?! I know it’s a little a ridiculous.

To start with let’s take a look at my desired menu:

Turkey
Dressing
Mashed Potatoes with Prosciutto and Parmesan Cheese
Streuseled Sweet Potato Casserole
Green Beans with Cranberries and Almonds
Cranberry Sauce with Apple Cider
Corn Bread with Dried Cranberries and Golden Raisins

Apple and Dried-Cherry Lattice Pie
Pecan Pie
Pumpkin Pie
Chocolate Walnut Meringue Pie

Menu looks good, but with the exception of 2 dishes everything needs and oven. Okay, let get to planning. How are we going to pull this off? Stay Tuned…

Celery, measuring about 30” long.  When we picked it out at the market though it measured over 4’ long; in till they cut it down with a machete for transport home.
