With the onset of Turkey day, my consumption of Prilosec and/or Alka Seltzer tends to be on the upswing. I’m given to understand it happens to most, and to the best, of us during this time of the year. While that does nothing to placate the inner workings of my gastrointestinal system, it does make for some form of consolation.
So what, you might ask, is my culinary strategy to surviving Thanksgiving 2014? This is when I go along the less is more route meaning let there be variety and a conservative hand when serving portions upon my plate.
Here’s what’s on the menu tomorrow. The gastronomical orgy commences with cornbread stuffing and gravy (made way ahead cos that’s how we roll).
A ménage à trois of pies is always sexy. This year, the line-up is comprised of Apple, Pumpkin and, making its debut appearance, Sweet Spud.
Mac n Cheese makes an appearance every last Thursday of November because Eve is a huge fan. And she’s scary when her tummy rumbles.
Happily adding to the calorie fest are Green Bean Casserole and Sweet Spud Bread Rolls. Oh, and there’s Pumpkin Soup too.
The following complete the evening’s fare on a ultra sweet note. Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with a creamy Martini Bianco filling and Tiramisu.
You’ll note that this post is visibly void of any pictures of our turkey. That’s because the bird is so huge, I couldn’t fit it within the camera frame of my iPhone. I kid you not.
What’s weighing your table down tomorrow?
