Me too! I'll actually be cooking this Thanksgiving. Should be fun.
Thought this was going to be a pitch for a Sensex index ETF :)
Scruffys rolling out a large pill.
Ever tried Mango chutney? I'll have to sometime. I've seen it for sale at World Market.
Yeah, that probably would have made a lot of sense(x) :)
Mango chutney is great! Nice combination of sweet and savory. But chutneys are pretty easy to make (and taste great homemade). All you need is time for it to reduce slowly and simmer on the stove. Good stuff!
Binve, are you Scruffy? Scruffy only seems to comment when you are around. Hmm...
Nope. I have binve and binv271828 and that's it. But I do think us Futurama fans on Caps tend to stick together :).
B-Man, I'm in Belize for a month or so. As a former Brit colony, there is no shortage of chutney (or 80ish turquoise water or cold beer!). I don't stop by here much anymoe but still visit your Market T and A site. Great links and content. Regards.

Nice! I hope you are having a good time! (even if it is for work)

Thanks man! Much appreciated!!..
Thanksgiving menu -
Turkey, dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, sweet potato souffle, mashed potato casserole (artery clogging), green bean casserole, bacon corn chowder, yeast rolls, lemonade, tea, coffee, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, chocolate pecan pie, dutch apple pie (yes from scratch, no next year I am NOT asking what everyone wants me to cook)
I haven't met Scruffy but I have sent a great big THANK YOU blog to the rest of you who answered my questions, steered me around the scary spots, and just been great friends! Of course, the problem is figuring out how to let you know it is there. This is my solution. (Did it work?) =)
That is an awesome menu!!
Our Thanksgiving Day is pretty standard: Turkey (which I brine), mashed potates and gravy from scratch, garlic-green beans, homemade cranberry sauce (it's just so easy). And definitely from scratch pumpkin pies! (my favorite!)
But the next day is the main event. We make a modified Hot Brown. Base is some good bread (I like ciabatta) toasted, then turkey, then gravy, then bacon, then tomatoes, topped with cheese (gruyere is excellent) under the broiler until it gets bubbly.
I look forward to this sandwich every year. With a nice hoppy IPA. It is just awesome :)
Thanksgiving cooking is a 3 day marathon that reminds me each year that I love to cook. There is something very satisfying about watching each dish come together. Over the years, some things have changed but each person has a favorite dish or two that HAS to be there.
Thank you for the idea of the Hot Brown. I don't know if that is a regional favorite and I am one of many that didn't know about it or if I am the only one in ignorance. I will try it this year. I bet it will be fantastic.
Keep a camera on hand for Binvette's first tastes of Thanksgiving "real food." I want to see!
