This Free Bird. And I did not realize until just now that her shirt says New York, while mine is - duh - California. I only remembered that she had on a long sleeve tee of sorts. Weirdly coincidental.
Maple Roasted Turkey with Sage and Bacon - I made this a few years ago, and the bacon shingled on top of the turkey? Was - DUH - delish.
Cornbread stuffing with apples, sausage, and dried cherries - The recipe in the link isn't EXACTLY what I'm doing, as I like dried cherries in my stuffing, and will omit the bourbon, but I'm a big recipe tinkerer. Sometimes I just have an ingredient (or ingredients) in mind that I want to use, so I'll google oogle oogle til I just can't google no more, and combine various recipes to get what I want. I'm not combining in this case, just tweaking. Tinker, tweak, google - this post has gone straight up gay porn.
Gingered Cranberry Sauce - I have never been a fan of the cranberry until the last few years, and now I like it a lot, ESPESH with leftover turkey in sammich form. YUM. This recipe with the ginger sounds simple but yum.
Butternut Squash with Toasted Pecan and Goat Cheese Gratin - In the words of a commenter on Tom & Lorenzo the other day, "Holy flying f@#ksticks," this is the Best. Dish. EVER. I mean, just look at the ingredients: butternut squash, toasted pecans, GOAT FRIGGING CHEESE, heavy cream...it's a big, oooozy, creamy, crunchy squashapalooza of goodness. Do yourself a flavah and MAKE THIS BITCH.
Ginger Pumpkin Tart - Typically I make a Banoffee Pie for Thanksgiving, just cuz it's my favorite pie, but I only want it around the house once a year (because any more than that and I'd weigh roughly 487 pounds). ANYHOOZLE, I came across this recipe for ginger pumpkin tart and thought it looked grand, so GPT it is. And apple pie for The Hubs (courtesy of my mom), with NO CINNAMON, because apparently in Ireland, they don't do crazy things like put cinnamon or nutmeg in their apple pie. Nosirrreeeebob. It's apple, sugar, and crust. Blah. Oh, and also? The Hubs requested mashed potatoes AND roasted potatoes AND stuffing, to which I said - NO, PICK ONE - what am I, Monica from that episode of Friends where she made eleventy five different kinds of potatoes for everyone? I THINK NOT. BUT I DIGRESS.
While I'm digressing, imma go ahead and say this too - The Hubs stays up much later than me at night, and gets in the bed and is FREEZING EFFING COLD, and tries to snuggle up to me at, say 2 a.m., while he is - did I mention - FREEZING EFFING COLD, and put his ice cube toes all up in my bizness, and last night, I was having NONE of it. No snuggle for you, sir. Mayhaps you should get your arse out of the bed and put on some socks. I mean. HOW RUDE. Sorry I just went all Stephanie Tanner on you.
Wow - I had a lot to say today, didn't I? So let's hear it - what are YOU having for dinner this year on Thanksgiving? And for those readers outside of the U.S. - you can share your dinner plans as well - it's all good.
