So many things on the table or used to make this meal came from so many people–gifts, items i received after their death, etc…so even if you don’t see yourself there consider that so many gifts and memories went into the prep as well.
Once again, i smoked a turkey.
I didnt follow my own recipe so it wasnt as perfect as usual (and grilled turkey people is great!)
Heres a peek at her prep:
Mashed potatoes, yams and pumpkin:
Gluten free stuffing:
Gluten free green beans with a nod to walmart for gluten free cream of mushroom and sprouts for gluten free fried onions.
Pickled peppers with goat cheese, cucumber and mint:
A thanksgiving cocktail with sparkling apple, cranberry, sage, lemon and mionetto rose in our waterford flutes:
In the background of the table pic, you will see Jim’s watergate salad of pistachio, pineapple, nuts, etc.
And our pies:
Scratch pumpkin and a pecan with gluten free crust.
Lost of leftovers….just the two of us.
So today was inspired by a bon appetit email about weekday pasta bakes
Turns out i had the items needed for my own bake at home.
Ricotta hidden within
Spots of sauce
Had a nice salad on the side
So in dallas we picked this up:
Dude Sweet Chocolate
Its yummy with figs, dates and almonds. And it looks like salami!
Ha! So kimchi kraut made me want real kraut and sausages somi hit Continental german deli at lunch.
I had the above salad dressing
It kinda looks like the package doesnt it?
I had some red and berlin style kraut and seeet mustard
Add so potatoes and my knacks and swiss sausages…
Im tempted to do it again tonight!
So i bought some kimchi saurkraut (which is yummy by the way….its saurkraut with kimchi seasonings), and had no idea what to do with it. My reference is saurkraut wih potatoes and sausage.
So thats what i did. White rice, potatoes in tamari and shrimp sausage. I basically used a shrimp burger recipe and shaped it as sausages, rolled in foil, froze to firm up and baked them.
