This year, I am revisiting the basics. What I mean by that is, every once in a while, sometimes you have to stop and reminisce about traditions and your roots. This Thanksgiving, I want to do just that. I want to make some classic dishes and turn the heat up a bit Freaky Curry style.
Nothing fancy. Simple, classic and modern… Hmm.. Classic and modern..?!. I know what you are thinking.. Trust me, it’ll happen..
So this is my tentative menu so far. Let me know what you all think.
Cheese and charcuterie board
Tossed salad – Mixed greens, roasted artichokes, roasted pears , Stilton and a champagne vinaigrette.
Twisted sesame braid w/ Sage butter
Irish soda bread
Curry Butternut squash bisque
Fried turkey (rosemary sage brine)
Baked polenta and sausage stuffing
Marrakesh acorn squash
Twice baked sweet potatoes with roasted pecans rubbed with cayenne and maple
Green bean w/ a mushroom butter sauce
Fried Corn medley
Gouda and landaff baked mac n’ cheese
Sea Salt roasted potatoes w/pearl onions
Roasted roots: carrots, parsnips and turnips – rosemary honey butter
Drunken cranberry cake (Staple in this house!!)
Not sure how much of this will actually show up at the table but I will try ! I am going to start getting busy in the kitchen here soon… Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I thank you for being a friend and a supporter.
