We sat 26 people down for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. Some family but also friends. Our menu was as follows:
Thai pumpkin soup
Smoked organic turkey
Roasted organic turkey with confit legs
Fried organic turkey
Roasted shrimp with rosemary
Chili-bathed sweet potatoes
Orange cranberry sauce
Roasted carrots with creamy nuoc chom sauce
Hashed Brussel sprouts with lemon
Chocolate pumpkin cheesecake
The spread was quite impressive (since boiling water is a culinary highlight for me, I can say that). 🙂
We also had the traditional day-after-Thanksgiving breakfast of homemade sticky buns.
Most importantly for us on Thanksgiving, however, is to be grateful for life’s blessings. And so we give thanks for our good health and the family and friends in our lives. We hope your Thanksgiving was as full of gratitude as ours!
