For those of you just tuning in, I'm the kind of blogger who only posts about holidays after they happen. Mostly because I don't actually host any of them, having lived in a small apartment for the whole life of this blog. I typically go to my brother's place and he, his wife and myself cook. I did a whole post about Thanksgiving last year. This one is going to be a bit brief, but here are some of the highlights of the dinner this year.
One of the appetizers she made was this fruit compote. It was awesome, I'm going to get the recipe and do a post about it. There was also caramelized onion/cornbread stuffing which I completely forgot to eat and for some reason didn't take any home. My sister in law offered me some to take, but clearly the wine was effecting my judgment since I said no. Who knows what I was thinking. Whiskey glazed carrots are always a good choice. Baby brussel sprouts with bacon and... something. I don't remember what and I didn't have any since I don't care for brussel sprouts. Everyone who ate them said they were delightful though. Of course the turkey was amazing, it always is when my SIL makes it. This, children, is where gravy comes from. Mmmm, gravy. No, there is no mix of any kind in there. It's just drippings, basting liquid, salt, pepper and a cornstarch slurry. Yes, it is the best gravy in the world.
And that's all the stuff I got pictures of, I'm afraid I haven't been in blogging mode what with all the packing. But, I hope everyone who celebrates it had a good holiday.
