Happy Thanksgiving! This year's celebration was nice! A good group of people with not too much food, but all of it delicious.
I had coffee at my friend's place this morning, and it's good he makes it strong, because that was all I ate until snacks at my parents' house around 2:30. Well, I did take time to drink cranberry-apple juice with spiced gin.
Took some time at first to chill with tha cats. Here's Cicero staring at the squirrels and birds feasting on seeds in the yard.
Chopped and chopped for what felt like forever, drank some water, cleaned a little. Finally it was time for SNAX.
We all drank a champagne cheers and kept the boozing coming.
Seneca guarding the table.
I made the Mushroom, Brussels, and Barley bowl from Salad Samurai (subbing farro for barley)
acorn squash/tofu dish my aunt made, roasted root veggies, and the Brussels sprout salad. There was also cranberry sauce and other sauteed mushrooms to round everything out. Everything was so good.
Hannah Kaminsky recipe that was in a VegWeb collection. There is maple syrup instead of molasses and, actually, more cardamom than ginger. Very delicate and delicious.
Good night! Hope you all enjoyed your day.
