The meal I missed – laid out in the kitchen for eating in the dining room.
Description with email and photo: Turkey,Stuffing, Corn Pudding, Cherry glazed onions, Mashed Potatoes, Cranberry Sauce, Butternut Squash, Carrot Slaw, Brussels Sprouts, along with Apple and Pumpkin Pies. A Feast. Wish u were here. All the [Perrys]
What I always loved about my cousin’s Thanksgiving meals – the traditional, always, but with one or two variations. I note that she apparently found her lost recipe for Asian Carrot slaw ( I prepared it one year, thought I would hate it, but found that the cold, acidity refreshingly cut through some of the heavier dishes. Then we couldn’t find the recipe again) Cherry glazed carrots are new. I see some fried sage leaves on the mashed potatoes ( we love those) But, I also see that family pressure finally won out, and the turnips, which only Nanny Stell liked ( and made, and brought and ate) are at last, off the menu.
