Late Thanksgiving

A different sort of Thanksgiving this year--just us and Justin and Claui  and Josie, and we postponed till Saturday so the young uns could spend Thursday with Claui's folks. 

All the traditional elements were there-- shrimp with cocktail sauce to start, roasted butternut squash, sweet potatoes, apples, and onions, Brussels sprouts, salad with pears and pomegranates, and the turkey and dressing--but this time the turkey  and dressing were wrapped in puff pastry-one package with white meat, one with dark. There was port wine gravy on the side and a pumpkin chiffon pie to follow. 

I have to say that it was excellent. And it produced (with the help of several bottles of cava) the traditional post-Thanksgiving stupor.

And there are leftovers!

Oh how fun...making beautiful nutritious stuff to eat, then sharing with family! I finally got around to making feast for one after talking on the phone with family who had the traditional fare. It was embarrassing to say I'd had a baked potato for supper...and pie - so the next day I made a sir fry of onion, squash and mushrooms as well as Yukon masked potatoes. . I've frozen pieces of pies so I can stop eating them.
