1. I realize that you’re most likely sick and tired of seeing pictures of other people’s Thanksgiving dinners, but I’d be a bad food blogger if I didn’t share mine.
I apologize for the redundancy.
Roast turkey + apple cider gravy, sauteed green beans w/ toasted slivered almonds, fresh orange cranberry relish, mashed sweet potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts, sausage & apple stuffing, and a green salad with blue cheese, dried cranberries, walnuts, & pears…
… and a Gobbler comprised of nearly all of the above piled high between two slices of whole wheat cranberry pecan bread the following day.
John & I spent a wonderfully intimate, quiet, relaxing, and delicious Thanksgiving with my parents. Although we’re used to a larger crowd, the four of us agreed that it was a perfect night =).
2. Still have some leftover turkey lurking in the fridge and looking for a unique way to use it up? Check out my Maple Peanut Butter Gobbler on the PB & Co. blog.
Sounds weird and maybe even a little bit scary… but it tastes divine!
3. The turnout at my 10 year high school reunion was pretty abysmal – in terms of numbers, not the actual people there. I was glad to have the chance to catch up with some old friends, but only about 60 people (out of a class of ~200) showed up, so the restaurant venue was pretty sparsely populated. I – along with my old classmates who did attend – had a good time, but I think it would have been even better if more people had been there.
Have you been to any school reunions? What was the experience like for you?
4. For today’s Back Burner post, I rounded up four of my homemade peanut butter recipes.
From bottom right: White Chocolate, Vanilla Bean Coconut, Dark Chocolate, and Cinnamon Raisin.
