I feel like I’m making headway on this Thanksgiving Cooking Journey. I must say, as of this evening, I’m having a good time. Today’s list has everything checked off of it, except the steak part of tonights dinner. Seems to me that might be a manly dish for Mike to make.
It was quite a busy kitchen day. It started with Banana Nut Bread and Cookies. A couple of yummy fish tacos at Rubios, the purchase of almost what I wanted wine glasses at Home Goods (but they had five of them and that’s the number I needed), a second round of grocery shopping at Raleys, and I was back at home to spark up the kitchen again.
I’m pleased to say, my Pie Dough is in the refrigerator ready to be filled and baked tomorrow morning. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Pastry-Dough-240606
And at this very moment, the Turkey Stock is simmering on the stove. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/printerfriendly/Homemade-Turkey-Stock-240445
Mike isn’t very fond of turkey. He’ll eat it, but would rather have ham. So tomorrow night, upon Big D’s arrival, I’m going to serve a ham. It’s pretty easy, and we can serve it again on Thanksgiving along with the Turkey. Tonight I’m making Mac and Two Cheeses with Carmelized Shallots . http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Mac-and-Two-Cheeses-with-Caramelized-Shallots-350762 There’s so much, I think there’ll be enought to make it through Thursday evening.
And now time for a glass of wine. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
