Since this has been the year of confronting one's fears, we decided to finally have turkey for Thanksgiving this year. Besides with a guest list of fifteen adults and four children it seemed the more sensible thing to do. So here's our kosher bird from Trader Joe's slathered with homemade Italian dressing on its way to the refrigerator on Wednesday.
Brussel sprouts, spicy cornbread, black bean and quinoa salad, a southwestern slaw and sweet potato mush. Yes, I completely forgot the cranberry sauce and yes, nearly a year later our dining room still looks sort of bare.
book while the banana bread is my version of this recipe where I get to swap out the chocolate chips with walnuts.
