We weren't feelin' up for more traveling (by plane, train, or automobile) this Thanksgiving, a bit under the weather with coughing and sneezings and ugh & whooped from being on the go non-stop for the past month.
So, today we stayed home and ate in waves.
First wave: Breffass Casserole (later deemed "breffass brownies" by Matthew)
Bake it forever on 350 until it looks like you wanna eat it (about 40mins).
Waves 2 & 2.5: Cream Cheese with Cranberry Salsa and cinnamon/gingerbread pita chips, followed by ghetto baked brie on top of a slab of boar's head turkey, served with crackers & cranberry salsa.
Cranberry salsa is 1 bag of cranberries, 1 jalapeno, 1 bunch of green onions, 1 bunch of cilantro, 2 limes juiced, and 3/4 cup of sugar. Throw all that shit into a culinary robot & viola, you got yerself some kickass cransalsa.
Ghetto baked brie is a wheel of brie sitting on top of a slab of turkey sitting on top of another pillsbury crescent roll with the edges of the bread all folded up and around the cheese and stuff. Baked at 350 for a little while.
Wave 3: Sweet Potato Soup, Craisin/Walnut/Goat Cheese salad, boar's head turkey sammiches on home made italian herb bread (with baconnaise)
Sweet Potato soup recipe is here.
You're smart enough to figure out the salad and sammich yourself.
I'm thankful for my husband & my home.
And the cats.
Matthew & Snoop are thankful for naps.
