Full and Thankful
We had a quiet Thanksgiving for two this year. I ordered a fresh 4 lb turkey breast from Eastern Market instead of making the whole bird for just the two of us. It was so wonderful to have L here and I’m already counting the days until we see each other again at Christmas. I put him to work hanging up shelves, a spice rack and pictures. He put me to work cooking – we only ate out once. (Thank you Aunt Nancy!) But that’s fine with me, I’m happy to cook for more than just myself again. Here is our Thanksgiving Day menu.
1. Mashed potatoes and parsnips with roasted leeks
2. Haricots verts and sugar snap peas with shallots and pine nuts
4. Grilled carrots with balsamic glaze
5. (not pictured) Cranberry-Apple pie
