|Camille and I|
A turkey was donated to our cause and we ended up making some sort of thanksgiving dinner with mac and cheese instead of stuffing. With so many picky eaters and vegetarians the baked mac and cheese was perfect. We made two pounds of the pasta and it was all eaten. As for the turkey, i just followed the instructions from howtocookathanksgivingturkey.com. The turkey turned out perfect. We also made the kale and brussels sprouts salad I previously posted. However my favorite dish was picked out of Bon Apetit Magazine, Spiced Glazed Carrots with Sherry and Citrus.
We started out with 2 lbs of carrots, but a half an hour before the dinner we had eaten all of them! So we had to buy 4 lbs more. It was a very quick dish, which took away a lot of the stress. I am not posting the recipe and instead have provided the like in the paragraph above. However I do have a few comments. The recipe calls for exact amounts, but I have found that guestimates work out just fine. Also orange juice works out fine if you don't want to buy clementine juice. Also I added more water when 'boiling' the carrots which made the recipe easier and it turned out fine. Just do whatever feels right and the dish will still be perfect. Just remember to eat it while its warm! Cold cooked carrots aren't my favorite.
