Thanksgiving Day…It was all fun and games until the Italian-Puerto Rican whipped out the pitcher and started to make drinks… *blink* … and the Jamaicans didn’t seem to mind one bit… *eye raise* … and the Italians, well, they were guzzling down the wine… smh.
(So, I had the craziest dream last night…someone was running behind me trying to kill me…I think…after they killed someone with a cleaver…I think…)
Cornish Hens…Roasted to Perfection (so I heard…I’m meatless)
Fish Filleted…for all the meatless folks but those who eat seafood
Ham: Sliced with lots and lots of basting (A staple during every holiday — every holiday)
Butternut Squash Soup: The smoothest and most creamy soup ever…Mmmmm…
Sassy Spitfire’s World Famous 4-Cheese Mac and Cheese
Cranberry Sauce…Next year, I’ll demand that multiple tablespoons of brandy be added. Yes?
Roasted and Caremelized Acorn Squash
Roasted Mixed Vegetables
Yes, more roasted vegetables: Zucchini, Yellow Squash and Red Onions with Parmesan Cheese…We try to be healthy. Try.
Green Salad with Tomatoes and Raw Mushrooms
Post-Thanksgiving…Reds, a.k.a., The West Indian Mother, fried up some fish (okay, like 20 pounds worth)…and I’m not a fried fish kinda chica but…when it’s escovitch fish…Yaaaaaasssss… *raises hand as if to ‘testify’*
Escovitch Fish – This angle
Escovitch Fish – That angle
And she left this…I can’t touch it for at least 7 days. It has to ‘seep’…i.e. marinate.
Pickle or “Pikkle”
