Happy Thanksgiving


thanksgiving turkey 2013I’ve been cooking since just after 8…  There’s a 20 pound turkey in the oven (see above) stuffed on one side with sausage, pecan, chanterelle, sage, white bread, and on the other with cornbread, giblets, chili poblano, etc.; there’s double-rich stock cooking since late last night for gravy.


First thing this morning I made a wild persimmon pudding (there’s rum hard sauce for that), a close sibling of steamed plum pudding (I’d been harvesting persimmons for that one, and removing seeds is a pain).  Roasted Brussels sprouts, sweet potato casserole topped with pecan streusel, mashed potatoes, and, because my father always requested it, green olives.
