The hubby and I had a quiet, but really nice Thanksgiving this year. Although he had to be into work at 3am this morning, he still managed to cook all day and make a scrumptious dinner for us! Thank you my love!
The hubby started Thxgiving dinner Wednesday night by soaking the turkey in a salt and whole cardamom pods and allspice brine. Find this lovely recipe on Cooking Light.com.
Thursday morning, while we watched the Macy's parade, the hubby made homemade crust for a yummy pumpkin pie. The pie was eventually topped with the hubby's homemade nutmeg whip topping:
The turkey boob was put in the oven around noon surrounded by apples, pears and herbs from the back yard. It cooked for about 2 1/2 hours - Look how beautiful it turned out!
The hubby cooked a variety of sides, including green beans topped with walnuts, breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese; shitake mushroom risotto with mild sausage and herbs; Indian spiced potatoes and parsnips; cranberry chutney and apple cider gravy!
The complete feast!
