We have a tradition of gathering in Sunriver, OR for Thanksgiving with about 10-12 friends that are also Oregon transplants. This is my 10th Sunriver Thanksgiving and Matt’s 12th. We rent a big house that fits all of us and everyone pitches in with some part of the meal either by making a dish or cleaning up. It is one of my favorite weekends of the year. The last few years, we have made more of an effort to use local foods. We even won a Farmaid contest last year.
We neglected to order a turkey from Deck early enough this year so when we contacted them, they were all gone. We tried a few other potential sources with no luck, so our turkey this year was from California. Besides the turkey, most of our other main ingredients were local. A detailed ingredient source list is below.
