Thanksgiving is fast approaching as evidenced in my committing to bring food to my in-laws today and the cranberry relish and mashed sweet potatoes I am taking today to the preschool Thanksgiving feast. Yay for Thanksgiving. It's the only US holiday truly centered around food.
Here are some posts with some good Thanksgiving feast type dishes. Most of these dishes feature ingredients you can find locally in Austin, Texas this time of year.
A Brine and Aromatic for a Turkey (plus a little info about Heritage Turkeys)
Arugula Autumn Salad
Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake (for those who want something other than Pumpkin Pie)
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash
Whole Wheat Bread (you could easily just shape this into dinner rolls too)
Arugula Bread Pudding (would make a great dressing recipe)
Happy Cooking and Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank your farmer next time you see him/her and remember to celebrate the bounty we have received from the earth.
