To get into the spirit of the season of eating-too-much Hans and I decided to have an early, mini Thanksgiving. We woke up early, stayed in our pajamas, worked all day in the kitchen and ate the mother of all meals by 3 pm. Twiggy joined in on the festivities by feasting on turkey and promptly going into an all-day tryptophan-induced coma.
A traditional Thanksgiving meal takes a lot of work; choosing the menu, shopping, cleaning, chopping, mincing, mixing and then finally, cooking and baking. So, here is a list of the food and recipes we made to help make your own Thanksgiving a little bit easier.
Roasted vegetables in olive oil, salt and pepper including beets, purple potatoes, brussels sprouts, carrots and onions
Roasted fruits in olive oil, salt and pepper including, apples, grapes and pomegranate seeds0 Comments
