What are you eating for Thanksgiving this year? If you're in the US of A, that is! I was inspired to post this after hearing that my good friend, Celeste, is bringing a flourless chocolate cake to the table - recipe here - https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/flourless-chocolate-cake-14478 Of course I'm going to try that.
I'm taking roasted veggies - carrotts, parsnips and potatoes to our friends' meal. Always welcomed.
How about you? Any good recipes out there?
My Turkey Soup
- This keeps the white meat tender
- Cook according to baker bag instructions
Everything except the “gobble” into the stew pot
Boil 2-4 hours so the meat falls off the bones
Put in the ‘fridge over night
Skim the fat off the top the next day
Heat so it is liquid again, then de-bone
Add spices to taste (a bit of Italian & “whatever”)
Costco Sun Dried Tomato (SDT) (see Note 1)
Add 1-2 cups of Harvest Medley rice (Costco)
- or your choice of wild or regular rice
Boil for about one-half hour to partly cook the rice
Add chopped carrots and cook about one-half hour
Add soft vegetables (celery, onion) for one-half hour
Depending on turkey size should be about 2 gallons
(1) SDT adds rich flavor AND the olive oil packing
So don’t use if you don’t want much oil flavor
I so so so so miss Thanksgiving!!!!
Can you all airdrop some leftovers here in Germany?
Thanks John, kinda glad we're not cooking the turkey this year!
>airdrop some leftovers here in Germany
I have a friend with a small hover helicopter... but it is battery operated so I don't think it will fly that far... and the payload is only about one ounce
We are very traditional in our house—turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, roasted cauliflower with lemon and pine nuts, roasted brussel sprouts with bacon, and pumpkin and pecan pie. 😋 But my (grown) kids are bringing friends and all the young people will make it fun and lively and I can't wait! 🦃 🥧
I'm with you on the Brussel Sprouts and bacon, Barb! Yumm!
Celery Root Mashed Potatoes
Kick up the flavors with grated horseradish and dijon mustard. Oh, so good.
Thanks Nancy, looks delicious - will try another time.
We ordered a turkey dinner from my wife's athletic club, tonight, and tomorrow (Thanksgiving) we will have leftovers. No cooking here.
does it have to be turkey... we don't really see them but will this do?
I've never had peacock but I imagine it's similar to wild pheasant or wild turkey.
This is Jessie, and he has dietry issues. 😬
