Last post about food I made for Thanksgiving this year (I think…).
As we discussed the Thanksgiving menu, my parents and I came to the conclusion that we were missing a vegetable. So, I volunteered to make something. After scouring pinterest for awhile, I decided to go with my favorite vegetables (see here, or here) of the past few years: brussels sprouts.
There wasn’t room left on the stove, so I knew I needed to find a recipe that could be done in the oven. Ultimately, I wrote down three or four recipes and combined them to create a recipe which would work for us. I like how it turned out, although in the future, I think I would roast them a little longer or do this on the stovetop to caramelize the brussels a little bit more.
Of all the items on the Thanksgiving table, stuffing/dressing is one I could take or leave. It’s not my favorite. A few years ago, I made wild rice stuffing for either Thanksgiving or Christmas and I liked that quite a bit, but overall, stuffing is less exciting to me. And, since we were a small group around the table, my dad decided to make Trader Joe’s Cornbread Stuffing. He jazzed up the dressing with a few additional ingredients, which really made it taste more homemade rather than made from a box.
