On this Turkey Day eve, I wanted to wish you and yours a very happy, healthy, and delicious Thanksgiving holiday. I’ve been in prep mode all dayâit helped that it’s been snowing all day here in the northeast, a perfect excuse to stay inside and chop, toast, wash, etc.âand so hopefully I’ll be ready for game day tomorrow. So far I’ve made (as pictured above): The roasted pumpkin soup; finished the fresh cranberry-orange-ginger sauce (there will be canned as well…it’s just a must for me), removed seeds from the pomegranates, toasted walnuts, toasted pumpkin seeds, pickled golden raisins, washed and steamed brussel sprouts, roasted squash, sliced mushrooms, and chopped shallots, celery, and spinach. All that’s left for tonight is to give my dry-brined turkey a good rubdown…sexy, right?
So good luck tomorrow! I hope it all goes your wayâthat the dog doesn’t steal the bird, the pie crust turns out just right, the relatives behave, the mashed potatoes aren’t lumpy, the children aren’t grumpy, and the wine flows freely.
