Boy oh boy, reading about everyone's feast is making my mouth water!
My task this year is green bean casserole. I hate mushy canned beans so I buy fresh and steam them in chicken broth. Meanwhile, fry up some good thick peppered bacon and chop it up, then saute up onions and red peppers in a little of the grease, deglazing pan with a little white wine (with a little for the cook...ah, who's kidding who, a lot for the cook!
). Mix everything with the roasted garlic mushroom soup and french fried onions and a little milk and soy sauce and bake. Then I add cheddar cheese for the last 10 minutes of baking. Certainly not the healthiest thing, but calroies don't count on Thanksgiving, right?
My aunt's going to hate it, because she grew up with mushy veges and that's what she likes. But I figure she can make it next year, I'm probably not going to be there because I'm moving out west come January.
Thankful for: my wonderful mom and sister, friends, my dog, good food, wine, music, art, and sex, my good luck in life so far, and the good ole' Grateful Dead vibe!
