Yummy!!!! Mashed Yukon gold and sweet potatoes with brie,bacon and scallions. Brussel sprouts with chesnuts here as well, served in delicata squash cups, Grilled Chippolini onions (instead of creamed)Cranberry/clemintine relish, ( and for only the cooks) A little seared Foie gras with port wine reduction and roast,turned french butter pear
My mom's candied sweet potatoes made with brown sugar and lime juice, reduced to a glossy glaze, swirled with butter. Boy, are they great! My brother in law is cooking, and asked me to prepare a recipe from the Food TV site for a green bean/wild mushroom casserole. The recipe sounds pretty pedestrian (bechamel, cheese, green beans, mushrooms...), but we have a lot of dietary limitations among our family members. No candied sweets, at least not this year.... (sigh).
Ooooh that sounds good, cape chef:
Brussels sprouts and chestnuts in a delicata squash cup... I'm going to my in-laws for dinner, and I'm sure they're not serving that! One weird thing that they serve on Thanksgiving that I've never seen anywhere else is cornichons! I guess it goes, in an offbeat way.
My favorite stuffing is chestnut, but my mother in law makes a great one with brazil nuts too.
Oh man, that sounds good! As for me, I like just plain 'ole mashed potatoes made with Yukons and russets. Stuffing made with Acme's foccacia bread. Throw in some roasted veggies (carrot, parsnip, zucchini, and fennel is a fave) and I am a happy woman.
