Turkey Day Warm-Up Redux

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

Last saturday was our turkey day warm up dinner. Happy to report that a good time was had. While it didn’t go as smoothly as I would have liked, all the food got out and we set a new record in attendance (14!).

On the menu:

  • empanadas
  • Crackers with Fromage d’Affinois and Sarabeth Marmalade
  • butternut squash soup
  • mashed yams
  • corn bread pudding
  • brussel sprouts cooked in bacon fat (mel special)
  • macaroni cheese (mel special)
  • challah stuffing
  • bourbon cranberry sauce
  • turkey

Other new additions this year included real plates and cups! Maybe next year we’ll have real chairs.

Many thanks to our wonderful guests who provided all the booze and desserts as well as fantastic company for a night of eating and drinking. Also, major props to mel for the mac & cheese and brussels as well as tessa for a wonderful home made apple pie.

As always, we’re looking forward to next year’s dinner. We’re hoping to see all the smiling face of those who could and couldn’t make it this year. With the new job, we might not be trying as many new recipes this year, but i’m sure we can find something interesting to add to the menu.

Finally, many were curious about the infamous spreadsheet, so here it is. Enjoy.
