When we talk about American food culture, Thursday is it.

What’s everyone making for Thanksgiving? Here’s our tentative menu:
  • Snacks/light lunch/stuff to pick on while we’re cooking all day:
  • Red chili flake and lemon marinated Castelvetrano Olives
  • Fancy cheese and crackers
  • Roasted garlic spread
  • Homemade tomato jam stored from the summer
  • Dinner:
  • Assorted heirloom roasted squash with sage
  • Garlic and herbed fried potatoes
  • Traditional stuffing with carrots, celery, swiss chard and thyme
  • Romanesco cauliflower, beets, apple and onion salad
  • Fresh cranberry and orange relish (and of course we’ll also have the canned stuff or my brother would freak out)
  • Sauteed Kale with white wine vinegar, toasted hazelnuts and chantrelle mushrooms
  • Balsamic roasted brussel sprouts
  • Slow roasted salmon with chantrelle mushrooms and an herbed butter and white wine sauce
  • Deep fried Turkey (using a brine recipe from Martha!) with gravy
Also, our cousins are bringing a wild rice dish, home brewed beer and a pear cake with rum sauce. And we’ll also have a selection of chocolate from my factory for dessert as well. What are you making for thursday?

    Katie, Stacie, you were both missed in La Caya as you shall be in Santo Domingo. Just know that there are those in the world who give thanks for memories of Thanksgivings past that were shared with you.
