Thanksgiving and other feast days
« on: November 23, 2021, 07:08:49 AM »
Thursday we celebrate Thanksgiving in the U.S.  My husband is going to cook a duck breast.  He's been watching Jamie Oliver in the evenings and is going to do some kind of port wine/bing cherry sauce.  I am happy to let him at it.  We will have mashed potatoes with parsnips and some greens on the side and I'll probably bake an apple galette for dessert.  That will consume hours in the kitchen, but it will make for a simple nice dinner.  What, if anything, are you planning to cook for the holidays?

Ham, turkey, duck, roast beef?  What sides and desserts do you prepare?

What? No green bean casserole?

(We will have a full American thanksgiving dinner, likely with pumpkin pie)

Ha!  We will most likely steam some green beans.  I'm not a big casserole fan.  I love pumpkin pie, but haven't made one for years.  Maybe for Christmas.

Green Bean Casserole was all marketing. Campbells shoehorned it in to "Thanksgiving" to sell cream of mushroom soup.
I like green beans; I like crispy onion things. I don't like cream of mushroom soup.

Holy poo, my browser just had me drop a semicolon.
