Thanksgiving Dinner Pix

Our Thanksgiving this year was... a bit less than than traditional. The purists would be appalled. But, we couldn't help ourselves.

It was a simple affair that started with roasted chestnut and porcini soup (this soup was seriously good... no great... we just might make it again for Christmas).
Dinner included a side of sauteed shaved brussels sprouts with garlic.
And smashed yukon gold potatoes with buttermilk and white truffle oil.
But, the highlight of the meal was the slow roasted pork with melted apples.
No turkey here folks. And our leftovers... well, they are of the porkly persuasion. But, I can't say I'm terribly disappointed. After all, I did buy that holiday turkey (who can argue with Big Bird at $0.38/lb?). We'll just have to cook him up some other weekend.

  3. Well, what's "tradition"? It's not as if what we eat today really resembles anything the Puritans ate, so it's all good. I'm loving that pork. I'm tired of turkey, so I'll be over to help you eat up those leftovers.

    Musrhoom soup is totally traditional T-day. My mother made it for years and my brother made it for me this year.

  6. I ain't mad atcha. I almost made elk sirloin roast instead of turkey.

    The shaved Brussels sprouts are a winner, aren't they? The shaving takes toooo long though. I guess it's worth it for a special occasion.
