So what’s on for Thanksgiving dinner at your place? Wanna pass on that favorite recipe that you simply can’t get away with not making?
Here’s the (still slightly tentative) menu for us – w e just added a few more guests at the last minute, and I might find myself compelled to add more food, even though it probably already excessive. But hey, this is my favorite cooking project of the year!
Provided by our friends of Chinese heritage who feel that turkey is a poor substitute for duck:
Chicken bao (chinese style dim sum buns)
Turkey roasted with 100 cloves of garlic
Roasted garlic gravy
Cornbread-dried fruit stuffed squash (vegetarian entree)
Cornbread-carmelized onion stuffing with chicken livers (best stuffing on earth)
Herbed mashed potatoes and celery root
Sweet potatoes with coconut milk and lime
Lime-soy marinated brussels sprouts
Shredded carrot-beet-apple and winter green salad with preserved lemon dressing
Balsamic-glazed roasted onions
Pumpkin Pie (non-dairy of course, since we’re kosher, but you can’t tell)
Sweet potato and chocolate cake
So what about you?
