the art work

I cant show any of the piece I have been working since it is a surprise gift and I have no idea if the recipient looks at my blog. I want to show everyone so that I can get some feedback but alas I cannot. So in lieu of this I will discuss our Thanksgiving menu.



The desserts have been made, you will have to wait to see the beautiful plated versions but I will show you a little of the process and for starters here are some almond cookies to tide you over.



I did make a delicious flan and a pumpkin pie in this style but for now you can have a look at a pear tart....



...and individual pear bites with pomegranate arils!



Tri-color sweet potatoes are also on the menu and this about sums up the 'made in advance' stuff. Tomorrow is a big ol' Shadybrook Farms turkey with stuffing (dressing) thyme mashed potatoes and oodles of little tasty bites like mini crab cakes and chevre stuffed olives just to tease a bit. More to come maybe late Thursday or Friday - HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Next year I'm going to look really hard and try and find some of those purple potatoes! I've never seen them in the store!

I'm jealous...goat cheese stuffed olives...oh my! Our Thanksgiving is a bit haphazard this year. I'm visiting my parents. My father has been released from the rehabilitation facility for five hours today...the broken leg is healing nicely. The Main Man is working across the state. Dinner will not be what it usually is. I'm living vicariously thru you! Don't let us down! I'm sure you won't. Happy Thanksgiving you sexy Chef!
