Early post because my extended family is coming into town for Thanksgiving and I am taking a three-day weekend to spend time with my parents! I’m working the holiday (today) and then I am free until Monday. Early Thanksgiving because I already managed to cram five holiday meal flavors into a short week of eating. <– good thing too, I spent yesterday evening baking my contributions for today’s meal and I did so much taste-testing that I may actually still be full this afternoon!
Eggnog (1) in my coffee. I’ve moved on from the soy nog, I just wasn’t a fan this year.
Pie (2) in my breakfast bar. Betty Lou’s cherry. I know cherry isn’t strictly a Thanksgiving flavor but I’m still counting it.
Stuffing (3) with roasted brussel sprouts (4). I actually made something of a stuffing-dressing/strata hybrid, with several eggs stirred into my stock. Plus roasted celery and onion, hunks of raisin pecan sourdough, fresh sage and parsley, and turkey breakfast sausage.
With a local cranberry (5) gose and maple brown ale for some thematic booze.
I hope all of my American readers have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
