Another Thanksgiving Gone...

by

comment

It's the day after Thanksgiving and I'm tired. Not as tired as people who had to fly or drive long distances to attend a holiday gathering, but tired nonetheless.  And I can't blame it on the turkey.

Maybe it's because my husband and I made Thanksgiving dinners two nights in a row. On the first night, we cooked for my dad. On the second, for my mom and aunt. We used almost entirely local ingredients -- many from my Pete's Greens winter farm share. Here are the menus:

With Dad:
Smoked salmon pizza (dad made it)
Minestrone (also dad)
Roasted squash gnocchi with Bayley Hazen blue sauce
Lamb shoulder stuffed with lamb sausage, duxelles, and bread crumbs
Pumpkin Pie

With Mom & Aunt:
Greens with toasted walnuts, apples and goat cheese. Cider vinaigrette with shallots.
Creamy celeriac and chestnut soup
Breadsticks (mom)
Scalloped potatoes topped with cave-aged Gruyere
Spiced cranberry jelly (yes, from scratch)
Gravy
Turkey
Cheesecake with apple topping (mom and aunt)
Cinnamon-raisin babka (mom and aunt)

What did you have?
