I am having some friends over for dinner this weekend, because I want to test keeping mashed potatoes warm for Thanksgiving. I was considering roasting a few chickens (so I can make some chicken stock for Thanksgiving) but I'm kind of over that idea. I'm interested in making this scallop & brussels sprouts recipe, but I think it's would be weird with MPs. I was also thinking of doing the pork loin recipe from Sunday Suppers at Lucques, but it's kind of my go-to recipe for larger dinners.
Any other ideas? Great recipes?
