So, I realised some time ago that I hadn't celebrated Thanksgiving since 2005. This kind of upset me, and I felt like I was missing out. So I decided that I would cook Thanksgiving dinner for my housemates on the day. Then we invited a couple more people. Then a couple more. Before I knew it I was preparing to cook a meal for 15 people. And you know what? It. was. awesome. Everyone came over, we drank, we ate far too much food, and we were merry.
Here's a rundown of the whole shebang:
pigs in blankets (thank you Kat)
devils on horseback (thanks again, Kat)
sweet potato-orange mash
green beans (thank you Jamie)
corn on the cob and broccoli (thank you Vivi)
roasted brussel sprouts with bacon and pomegranate seeds
maple-glazed butternut squash
gravy (thank you Katemonster)
apple and blackberry pie
homemade belgian chocolate ice cream
Keep an eye out for some of the above recipes. I will post when I stop being full.
