I tried a new recipe on Sunday with full intentions of showcasing how delicious it was.
Unfocused picture aside, I decided not to post the play by play of the recipe for the reason that it wasn’t all that great… at least to me. The sourdough parmesan breadcrumbs were crunchy and delicious, as were the potatoes, but alas, it’s official. I just do not like beets.
If you do like beets (I’m looking at you, Xtina), then maybe you should check out the Root Vegetable Gratin from William Sonoma Eating Well. It would make a beautiful Thanksgiving side dish.
With no Thanksgiving recipe to showcase, I decided to show off my favorites that I’ve seen around the web. In my dreams, all these wonderful ladies would work together in an ridiculously oversized kitchen to create a meal worthy of Joey’s Thanksgiving pants and all their glory.
In my food lovers’ Thanksgiving meal…
I’d start by snacking on some perfectly roasted chickpeas by Lindsay
while sipping on a warm mug of spiked cider with baked apple crisps thanks to Gina.
Once I was feeling all warm and cozy inside, I’d load up my plate with Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese from Kristin,
a giant helping of Cranberry Orange Brussels Sprouts with Walnuts that Emily whipped up.
Of course I couldn’t leave out the main event, a slice of Beer Brined Roasted Turkey by Lauren.
My face would light up with joy when I saw Jen’s Cheesy Mushroom Pull Apart Bread on the table. I’d grab a hunk… or two… or three (hey, it’s Thanksgiving!)
Now, let’s just pretend I didn’t stuff myself silly on all the delicious food and still had room left over for dessert. Well, then I would have to sample a few of Katie’s Spiced Sugar Cream Cheese Cookies, because I’m a sucker for anything with cream cheese!
Of course, it would be rude for me to not bring anything to share, so I’d wrap up each guest a Mini Pecan Pie to enjoy later when their stomach’s could handle food once again.
Yes, this would make for quite an amazing Thanksgiving feast!
…but lucky for me, my Nannie puts on a Thanksgiving production to be envied, so I’m looking forward to quite a fantastic meal- southern style!
