We had a large family dinner today, and another tomorrow. Today was Turkey, goose, and roast beef (rib roast) new potatoes, carrots, cabbage, turnip. Fresh cranberry jelly ( a simple reduction I think its called) Also an onion bread pudding, fresh blueberry pastry, and of course stuffing and gravy. Rick (pensacola tiger) sent me some of his knives, so I got to spend some quality time with them, thanks Rick!
Desert was apple pie, my own recipe and a recipe my mom used to make, it is a pudding/cake with molassas, walnuts, apple, cinnamon and some other spices, cooked in a double boiler, and served with a vanilla butter sauce, OMG! it is so good!
Tomorrow is glazed ham, scalloped potatoes, glazed carrots, sweet potato and my wife will be doing dessert, God, I'm gettin fat!
Yeah it was a good day. Lots of my wife's family came out for goose, roast potatos, dilled carrots, roasted brusel sprouts with bacon, an apple based bread dressing, and salad. Peanut butter squares and apple pies with ice cream for dessert. Gotta love it!
I'm doing up a dinner for relatives tomorrow. An easy starter with smoked oysters, ricotta cheese and lumpfish caviar on pumpernickel squares. Then a corn chowder (I think - I have the gameplan written down in the kitchen!), then a bit of spaghetti with spicy eggplant sauce, and then the the main dish, a mushroom & goat cheese stuffed "chicken galantine". One of the guests is bringing dessert.
