Its all the little things that make Thanksgiving special. From the cranberry relish to the herbed butter its these special touches that make the big things shine.
I made a sweet potato cheese cake since I cant get enough cheesecake and I cant get enough of the alternative cheese cake and since sweet potato pie is so good why wouldnt it be better as a cheesecake? The herbed butter is a mixture of fresh thyme, rosemary and sage and it was packed all up in the turkey, I like a 10 pounder since they seem more tender and juicy to me.
The cranberry relish is so simple it made itself while I was doing other things, fresh cranberries, a peeled and supremed mandarin orange a little sweetner and the blender - thats it - uncooked and tasty.
What about oyster stew - well we had a little appetizer of oyster stew - a creamy base with shallots and some fresh oysters simmered oh so gently.
You are probably asking yourself about the stuffing well ask no more its a pretty standard deal, a little cornbread a little regular bread a little sage sausage some giblets and some chestnuts-cooked outside the turkey.
Did I forget to mention a little appetizer idea I stole from her,
The behind the wheel chef. Cherry tomatoes with guacamole and shrimp, my shrimp were huge gulf shrimp so I chopped them up and mixed them in the guacamole so the whole thing gets popped in your mouth. How do you say tasty with your mouthful while looking really sloppy?
Feliz pavo gordo......
one love and peace
You think I am lying....this is my cousin cutting the turkey. How do you say juicy in several languages?
Rememeber how good this is?
Then its Monopoly.
Look there's plates and stuff waiting all over the place.
You Tell Me!
