My daughter was the chef for Thanksgiving this year. She did a FABULOUS job!!! The turkey was stuffed with lemons, and with fresh lavender, sage, rosemary and thyme (no parsley! LOL) from the garden. She made a spice rub, and coated the outside and under the skin.
Caramelized corn with mint, mashed potatoes, and sweet potatoes balls, were among the veggies she created.
The sweet potato balls were made with a fresh baked sweet potato, then mashed. She took a giant marshmallow, coated it with mashed sweet potato, and rolled that ball in crushed walnuts. Yum, yum, yum!!!!
All the veggies were home grown - something to be thankful for.
The trifle dessert lacked one thing - a suitable clear glass pedestal bowl to display the concoction! It was made up with my featherweight pound cake, with alternate layers of chocolate pudding, home made whipped cream, and shaved chocolate and chocolate chips. I've had 2 or 3 servings so far, and haven't even cracked open the pies yet!!! This year, the pies were store bought. May have to freeze them for future use!!
We are thankful for our family, our home grown bounty, and another year gone by.......
And, since my daughter was the chef this year, I am the clean up committee, so I had better get cracking!!!!
