Thanksgiving potluck with the neighbors and i only had to cook one thing! Somthing simple but also oddly enough a food with a memory attached of a family member. Presented on my grandmother’s serving tray that i love My sweet neighbor had sparkling cider for me next to the wine so i would have an option. I thought that was nice of her
I won’t see my extended family until the weekend so my husband and I cooked many things throughout the day. Here are two dishes. Purple mashed potatoes with vegetarian gravy. They look odd but tasted delightful.
And a from scratch fall apple cake with caramel also made from scratch. My pants are tight. Happy turkey day to all who celebrate.
Love this! I have some dishes from my mum & grandmother (even a great grandmother one). Feels so special to use them
Looks great! Love deviled eggs
Yesterday was a great day! Mild temps so we got to spend some time outside with a bonfire. The baked Brie was fricken fantastic! My husband who “hates” Brie ate a ton of it! The Cornish hens were beautiful. I made ahead a wild and brown rice blend dressing with mirepoix, tons of mushrooms and toasted pecans - delightful! Since those little hens don’t make a ton of drippings, I made a strong stock earlier in the day using a couple pounds of chicken gizzards and hearts I found at the grocery store. Cooked them on high heat to made a thick fond and then added veg and herbs and stock. That made for such a delicious gravy, I was pleasantly surprised! And Lupe got herself a very tasty holiday meal with those leftover bits, as well! I’m so grateful for a leisurely day of cooking, afforded to me by planning and preparing ahead and staying sober AF! Grateful for my amigos on this thread and on TS, too Thanks for sharing your holiday meals yesterday and on holidays across the globe.
A good almond croissant is hard to beat, and definitely a treat.
Back to salading it back up
Mixed greens, sliced pears, candied walnuts, dried cranberries, red onion, goat cheese; roasted pear vinaigrette
Kiddo requested “rainbow noodles”. Tri-coloured rotini pasta with meat sauce. And shredded cheese of course
Thanksgiving pics later…
This is lettuce, eggs, sweet potato, walnuts, pear, cooked cranberries. Cranberry pear vinegar.
I froze some fresh cranberries. I get them out, wash them in a colander and put in a bowl without water and microwave them for two minutes or less. They are coming out delicious! ( Before freezing the fresh berries I am dumping them into a freezer bag from the bag they came in)
Will look at all the food pics later, glimpses look awesome!
Looks so tasty !
Looks incredible! Enjoy
