The Menu

Saturday, 28 November 2009

Even though we had to work on Thanksgiving, we didn't go without.  It was Kim's idea to host Thanksgiving but since she's moving soon, Natasha was gracious enough to have us all over to her place.  We put out all of the goodies and looked at the table.  We all agreed, even though we weren't with our families, it certainly still felt like Thanksgiving.

David carved the turkey which was lovingly brined for 12 hours by Kim.  She used a complicated recipe and even rubbed lemon juice, zest and butter under the skin of the bird.  It was quite possibly the best turkey I have ever tasted.

I made stuffing and baked, candied cranberries.  We also had mashed potatoes, rolls, pasta (with Pakistani spices by Natasha), macaroni and cheese (homemade by Arrianee) and of course green bean casserole and pumpkin pie.  Wonderful!  Addison even stopped by with Sangria.
