More Thanksgiving yumminess.

Since I've given you the wines that the SPinC and I are planning to serve with Thanksgiving dinner, here's the rest of the menu:

First Course:
  • Roasted Tomato Basil Bisque
Second Course:
  • Clementines, jicama, toasted pumpkin seeds, and grilled red onion on bed of arugula and cilantro
Third Course:
  • Medallions of Pork Tenderloin with Linden Cherry Reduction
  • Pan roasted fingerling potatoes with pancetta
  • Bulgur flavored with roasted nuts and dried apricots
  • Blanched snow peas mixed with shavings of roasted carrot
Fourth Course:
  • Autumn Pear and Cranberry Crumble

Hope it'll be good eatin'...

What's that? You still want more options for your Thanksgiving table? Have I got a deal for you? Head on over to Michelle's place. She's put together a couple of "tables" full of folks from the local wine retail community and the Cincinnati metro blogverse (the latter including yours truly) to give some suggestions for good Thanksgiving pairings.

Of course, with Thanksgiving comes leftovers, and we've got you covered there, too. Kevin Keith from Liquor Direct is having a "Holiday Show" tasting this Friday and Saturday. In K2's own words:

The weekend after Thanksgiving, when you are sick of turkey, sick of your in-laws, and sick of holiday TV programs, come out to Liquor Direct for our final wine tastings of the year, presented in two parts with the first half being featured at our Covington location on Friday and the second portion of the program at our Fort Thomas locale. Saturday we’ll reverse the wines, which will be as follows:
