I thought, while the tea towels are drying, that I might change things up a bit this year; afterall, I wasn’t nicknamed ‘Mr Thanksgiving’ for nothing. Instead of showing you the after-math in photos, I thought I would start a bit early with the menu first and, perhaps, photos later. Do you need a recipe or reassurance? Maybe you need some initiation or inspiration. I’m more than happy to help in any way that I can, either through encouragement or recipe. Here then is the final (finally) Thanksgiving dinner 2011. Yes, you’ll notice a more traditional bend on it, but as much as I love being nontraditional, I do love a good turkey thigh from time to time.
pomegranate juice with clove
smoked tomato bisque
gruyère & onion monkey bread
jay’s roast turkey
escalloped potatoes florentine
roasted maple-mustard green beans
country bread pudding with fennel & pear
fontina fondue with brown bread and apple
melodie’s raisin pie with maple crème fraîche
I do hope pictures, and the full menu, complete with wines, will make its way to this blog shortly after the holiday. In the mean time, I want to encourage you to ask questions or make requests as they come to you. I am more than happy to assist in any way that I can.
