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:
- Alton’s holding my hand and leading me through his brined turkey recipe for my heirloom bird.
- Wild rice stuffing with hazelnuts and dried cranberries are a must. This is stuff that we’ll riot over if not around.
- The swiss chard gratin with Gruyere sauce was a creamy success, so we’re doing it again.
- And a final charm for our sweet tooth, Alice Medrich’s Walnut Date Loaf, a sneaker wave of a dessert loaded with dates, apricots and sweet Oregon Walnuts.
I love a meal with surprise hits. What part of your Thanksgiving was worth an immediate repeat?
