This was a huge hit at my restaurant:

Mesclun greens (or a baby greens mix)
Thinly sliced red onion
Canned artichoke bottoms
Whole pecans
Mandarin orange segments
Feta cheese

A lemon herb dressing simply combining 1/2 vidalia onion vinaigrette and 1/4 each olive oil and lemon juice. Very pretty and very tasty!

I have a holiday recipe that works every time:
  • Start with one warm, loving home.
  • Add as many extended family members as possible.
  • Share a round of hugs with all in attendance.
  • Listen to the sounds of a house full of family.
  • Make sure the aroma of home-cooking permeates the house.
  • Tell stories of "days gone by" to the teens.
  • Show silly magic tricks to the youngsters.
  • Look around the table and think about each individual attending as the meal is presented.
  • Remember those who are no longer with us.
  • Only bring-up positive attributes of any individuals, present or not.
And when it's over, forgive those who said the wrong things and start planning again.

I grew up on pig roasts for Thanksgiving. lol It was luscious, flavorful and melt in your mouth. When we went to my Grandfather's house where his dinners are very traditional with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes etc etc, it tasted dry and bland to me. (we often did the pig roast the night before going to my Grandpa's) So turkey was ruined for me. Only turkey I ever came close to liking was a Cajun fried or Jamaican Jerked turkey. I asked family what they wanted this year and all wanted the jerked turkey. So Jerk it is. I am too lazy to hunt down the several hard to find ingredients to make the jerk marinade, so I will use Walker's Wood. I thin some of it out with some stock and inject the bird. I then mix a bit of the Walker's wood paste with equal parts butter and run the outside and under the skin. Finally I grill it slow with mesquite chips. It will be our third time doing it this way and it delish.rb

P.S. I would eat up before going to my grandfather's so I never complained or didn't "not" want to go. I went to enjoy time with the family. I would just take a teeny bit and cover it up with mashed potato tracks. lol

Hmmm. You never pushed any of them into the oven. This would never work at our house.

More seriously, there are three things I have to make for Thanksgiving. Baked acorn squash (with tons of butter), broccoli with cheese sauce, and fried tomatoes. The rest of the table doesn't really matter much.

An excellent yet easy recipe is sherried sweet potatoes. You cook several sweet potatoes, cut them length wise in half and scoop out the insides, setting the shells aside. Take the insides and mash them (a food processor works well for this) adding butter, cream, a little salt, pepper, nutmeg and the secret ingredient sherry. After it is all blended scoop the mashed sweet potatoes back in the shell. The ratios of the ingredients are pretty forgiving, just taste as you go along and adjust, be careful about adding too much nutmeg though. You can blast them under the broiler for a bit to brown if you like or just serve. Very simple and the sherry adds a wonderful complexity to the potatoes. It's always a hit.
