What’s on my mind today?
Thanksgiving, with all the trimmings. With a little over two weeks to go, I am starting to think about what I will bring to the house I’ve been invited to and reveling in all the great flavor combinations that the season brings. Roasted vegetables with sage, turkey and rosemary, pie spices. We all know there are certain standards – mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing – but I’m wondering if any of you have any killer recipes or tips you’d be willing to share in the comments? Something you’ve incorporated into your turkey day meal that lends an unexpected kick and adds pizzazz to the good ol’ classics?
For example, I never used to get too excited about sweet potatoes, until my friend made them with a little orange juice thrown in. Now I can’t get enough. If you are willing to share – what are your Thanksgiving meal secrets?
