Ok, I will confess up front that this is a purely self-serving thread. I am cooking this year and looking for inspiration.
I think I will get a fresh turkey from a terrific butcher nearby, and the rest? I am working on some ideas, but would love some suggestions from this board. I got one recipe a couple of weeks ago when I was at Wegman's, a phenomenal grocery store (like Disneyland for Foodees). They were cooking this dish and serving samples - and my roomie and I both practically fainted, it was so delicious! It was mashed butternut squash with butter, cinnamon, maple syrup, mini marshmallows and orange juice. Surprisingly wonderful!
Is there a dish that you make (or eat) every Thanksgiving that's "to die for"? Or a recipe you've come across that you want to try this year?
I'd love to make a few FoodeeBoard-inspired recipes. My honey reads the boards, so it's even more fun to know that some of our dishes might come from people we've known in the Dimensions community for years.
Can you help us round out our tummies...errr...I mean...our Thanksgiving dinner?
I'll start. Here's my recipe:
Mashed Butternut Squash
20 oz of cut up butternut squash (Wegman's sells it already cut up - so does Trader Joe's)
1/4 stick butter
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 bag of mini marshmallows
1 tablespoon orange juice
Boil squash in a 2 quart pan until tender. Drain and return it to the pan. Add the butter and mash. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Mix well, serve and enjoy!
