How was your Thanksgiving celebration? For me, it is always fun to cook and share the Thanksgiving meal with those I love. This year I got to do it twice! We had a pre-turkey day meal a few weeks ago since my oldest son and his wife were spending Thanksgiving day with her family on the east coast. Yesterday, I prepared the entire meal over for my younger son and his girlfriend before they took off in the Sprinter for a holiday trip to Banff Alberta.
As you can see, there was a lot of food! My plate was filled with juicy turkey, sage herb bread dressing, Yukon gold mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy, Brussels sprouts gratin and dried cherry cranberry sauce. I held back on eating too many appetizers so I could have two desserts. The pumpkin creme brulee and brownie with homemade maple ice cream were both topped with candied pecans. Move back to moderation after a day of excessive holiday eating.
This evening I am going to make noodle soup with the leftover broth, turkey meat and vegetables-yum! I feel a cold coming on and the soup will be medicinal.
