Rik and I enjoyed a mostly quiet but very sunny and cold Thanksgiving Day. After the traditional watching of the Macy's Parade on TV (I always wanted to be a Rockette), I did a little cooking to bring to our friends G & D. We were at their home from about 3:30 in the afternoon until 9:45 at night. That's got to be a marathon festival meal....
Over dinner G noted that everything we were eating was made by hand from scratch. Now that's something to be thankful for!
(* indicates what I brought or made)
Butternut squash and green apple soup with fried sage garnish
Roast turkey with mushroom bread stuffing and gravy (* I made the gravy from G's scratch stock and turkey pan drippings)
Green bean and mushroom casserole with fried onion topping *
Hazelnut-glazed carrots *
Cranberry chutney * and cranberry relish
Freshly whipped cream
Chocolate bark with walnuts and raisins *
Hope your Thanksgiving holiday was joyous with the warmth of family, friends, or like us, with friends who are family.
