Thanksgiving Again

Saturday, November 24, 2007

After having unspeakably good thanksgiving meals (venison to die for, smoked salmon, roasted casseroles…) with our Salem families, we’re being total gluttons and doing it again tomorrow!

What can I say… we didn’t have any leftovers from the first time.

What we’re eating for our thanksgiving meal redo:

I love a meal with surprise hits. What part of your Thanksgiving was worth an immediate repeat?

This year, for the first time ever, we had our sweet potatoes without marshmallows — instead, souped up with brown sugar (and, of course, butter) and topped with toasted pecans. I’m sure this is ultra-traditional in many households, but for me, it was an eye opener. Sweet potatoes don’t suck!

We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia so I have nothing to share. I wish we did though..there are so many delicious recipes to try. I guess I can always create my own Thanksgiving but then there is always Christmas.

At my sister’s where I went for Thanksgiving My sister tried a brined turkey for the first time using Alton Brown’s recipe and it was definitely a success!

Instead of our usual canned green beans (I know), we did fresh ones sauteed with butter, lemon zest and sliced almonds. They were completely excellent, and great with the turkey.

That’s one of my favorite side dishes too. I haven’t had it in awhile. Yum.
