I hope that everyone’s thanksgiving is going well, with few food dramas, fewer family dramas and plenty of TV or Movie drama!
To start this all off, we had an easy dinner last night, in prep for a food-a-rific day today.
Black beans cooked in the crockpot, then warmed with green tomatoes, onions and cilantro. Sweet potato gratin with Queso Viejo. Pickled radish. Very yummy.
We haven’t finished making our food for the day, so I’ll leave you with a quick teaser of what we will be eating (or have eaten) today.
We have sweet potatoes roasting, parsnips chopped, a turkey being butchered into smaller pieces to be roasted or frozen, and brussels sprouts cleaned. Dessert is going to be a little more non-traditional, as we do not have any flour for pies. Pooh. It will be yummy anyway, and we will have to make a pumpkin pie in the future.
However, since it is the day of giving thanks, what am I (Theresa) thankful for?
I have to go butterfly a turkey breast and beat the crap out of it to make a turkey-roll-up-with-stuffing. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
