Wow. This is probably a first for me. Thanksgiving with no turkey at all consumed! Wednesday eve driving to Phoenix we had some tasty bbq in Cedar City. Thursday night Karen's dad and sister had a big turkey lunch, we got there about 8 and had some frozen lasagna that happened to be done just as we arrived. Friday evening I had planned on turkey, but it was just for my wife, my sister and myself so I was going to get a turkey thigh or two, debone and stuff. Could not find any, stuffed a small pork loin roast instead. My sister loved it - she called the sauce "angel sauce" since she found it heavenly. It was simply some shallot sweated in the pan drippings, deglazed with vermouth, a bit of thyme and sage, then heavy cream reduced a bit. Oh - and the last few bits of the mushroom, pepper and maple sage sausage stuffing that didn't make it into the roast was added. Did some boiled red potatoes with butter, salt and pepper, broccoli - good dinner. Instead of spending Saturday night in Phoenix and driving ALL day sunday we left Phoenix sat. eve and headed for Kingman. Stopped at a Denny's in Wickenberg, the prime rib philly melt sandwich was better than I expected. I may cook up a bit of turkey for dinner tomorrow, but I'm leaning towards a slow roasted chicken as recently discussed in some other threads. We shall see. mjb.
