Today was the first time I cooked a Thanksgiving dinner from scratch - all by myself. I was quite proud of myself - I didn't start mise en place until around 4pm! I roasted two turkeys too.
L'Apero and decor by Nina
I separated the skin apart from the meat and marinated the meat with butter, thyme, rosemary, sage, salt & pepper, and a shitload of garlic. Then roasted them with bacons on top for about 3 hours. I think this is turkey #1.
Amir shaving the CHINESE truffles he bought for 4 Euro. hahaha
"We have the technology..." says Amir.
Delicious mashed potatoes.
Stuffing - it was pretty tasty. Yes, I am still proud
Bon App !
Pumpkin tarte - er, potiron tarte
Amir is SERIOUSLY obsessed with truffles
We played La Vache qui tache again !
I was the winner! But no one wanted to stop the game until I got a "tache." We didn't finish until 2 or 3 in the morning.
A very fun and successful Thanksgiving.
