I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is over already and I barely had time to curl up on the sofa and savor the proverbial crumbs from Trial Thanksgiving the week before as it was truly epic. Within a matter of moments, everyone’s careful menu planning and diligent cooking was laid to waste by a hungry horde and all that was left was a decimated turkey carcass and a pile of dishes in the sink. My job has hogged most of my brain cells so all I can offer is a visual account so you can fill in the blanks.
Rye Pecan Pie made by the Doctor
Super easy to make salad and very delicious. You can probably make a few hours in advance but it doesn’t taste as good the next day.
Just realized that every single food item was either orange or yellow, except the green beans. Hmmm…will keep color diversity in mind for next year.
Beauty shot of the masterpiece that took two doctors to construct. The Urologist deboned the turkey with the skillful precision that any guy would want from a surgeon who is operating in that general area…and the Doctor stuffed it with sticky rice, sewed it back up, and roasted it to perfection. This bird look so relaxed, whilst reclining on a roasting rack before the hungry horde descended upon it . I briefly considered posting the “after” picture but I decided that it was a bit much and definitely NSFV (Not Safe for Vegetarians).
Salted Caramel Pecan Cheesecake by Cupcake and Pumpkin Streusel Gateau Basque by Joe of Demi Peche
Wish I had room for all the pics but the final tally, not including cheese & salumi, and countless bottles of wine was:
3 different stuffings, 2 brussel sprout dishes, 3 mashed tubers, roasted sweet potato chips, 1.5 turkeys, mac & cheese, green beans, persimmon salad, stewed chestnuts with ricotta cheese, fresh dinner rolls, and a lot of dessert as shown in the recap below.
No idea how my friends and I will top this next year.
