Ok, so I know I haven’t posted anything here in /forever/, and I haven’t really even started the site updates* I was promising you a long time ago, and whine whine whine, but I just have to gloat about my Thanksgiving meal, because it was _awesome_. Sadly, K wasn’t in town for Thanksgiving this year, but I got to spend it with my awesome friends N & A and their two adorable kids N & L.
Fried buffalo mozzarella balls. Aww yea. This was my favorite dish of the evening. And if you’re still unimpressed by this dish, just consider that somebody risked their life to get me that cheese. (This cheese actually came from Italy, not Wisconsin, or so claims my cheesemonger).
Strawberry margaritas: Margaritas are a bit of a… tradition with my family. Naturally it’s one I’ve picked up and carried on. Never tried it with strawberries before, though. But, I give it an A+++++. Would drink again.
Counterclockwise, starting with the roll: roll, stuffing, Brussels Sprouts with prosciutto and a balsamic vinegar reduction, mashed potatoes, grouper stuffed with Italian sausage, mushrooms, and spinach, and in the center, half a Cornish game hen. The Cornish game hen and the stuffing were at the insistence of N, who requires poultry during Thanksgiving.
Pumpkin Chiffon Pie: this is something my grandma makes a lot, and I’ve blogged about it on here many times before. But I just have to blog about it again, because when you cut three pieces of pie out of a pie tin like this, it makes a radioactive symbol! My food is so awesome it glows.
Uhhh… maybe that’s not a good thing.
*Someday I’ll do that site update, I swear!
