    Default T-Day dishes

    I'm a guest this yr. so the pressure is off!!! That means I can get jiggy with it.

    Gorgonzola Pasta with Spinach and Walnuts is at the top of my list to bring. I'll make fettuchini pasta by hand and bring the dish at room temp. This should go with anything.

    Should I make the pasta with cracked black pepper?

    I'm a really simple Thanksgiving day person. No stuffing or Pecan pie for me. All I want is some simple turkey, cranberries, brussel sprouts and butternut squash soup. I don't really deviate from that. Gave up stuffing years ago

    Sounds Delicious Josh. I make a similar dish with Linguini,Spinach, and gorganzola, we use Pine Nuts, well cooked mushrooms and crisp up some pancetta to crumble over the top. I stole the idea from a friends restaurant, he called it Linguini con Spinacci. I'll need to try it with toasted Walnuts, that adds a new dimension.

    Shannon's in town from Atalanta, Jess and Ben are coming over and it's just us for Thanksgiving. I asked what they wanted, so the menu is.. Salad of some sort, Baked Ziti with Spicy Pork and Sausage Ragu, Garlic bread, probably some type of Veg and Zabaglione with Strawberries for Desert.

    We’re headed to my folks with my siblings et al. 16 mouths to feed, and our household is in charge of the turkey, antipast, and Wednesday night dinner

    1. Padma Lakshmi turkey recipe. Buttermilk brine 18-24 hrs (though I go easy on the salt), slow roast 3-5 hrs with fennel, apple, orange, onion, rosemary, etc. then mash all down to make the gravy. Broil for last 30-ish minutes to crisp the skin.
    2. Mozzarella, salami, provolone, olives, roasted pepper, artichoke, etc.
    3. Farfalle in a white wine/butter/veg stock sauce with chicken, Italian sausage, broccolini, and sun dried tomatoes. Pine nuts are a good idea- will bring some of those too.

    Turkey liver pate with thyme, apple, shallots, and brandy
    Smoked oysters with kimchi compound butter

    Delightful.

    I'm gonna make a pumpkin pie, and bring it nowhere.

    I might just eat the whole damn thing just because it's a holiday!

    Cornish hens with grape and porcini stuffing and a Madeira sauce, brown/wild rice casserole, pan roasted carrots with crumbs, oatmeal rolls and sweet potato pie with whipped cream. Sort of but not quite traditional.

    PSA: People who come for a multi-day stay-over and bring coffee go to heaven twice. FWIW.

    Just my wife and I and a couple stray single old men neighbors at our joint this year. We are having pork tenderloin. Prolly make some oyster stuffing (cajun style) a veg or two and of course pecan pie. We eat turkey samwiches all year and pork tenderloin is a way mo betta roast IMHO. Oh and wine and beer.

    Your bread will be the chef’s kiss. I will miss seeing the table Mrs. RS always sets.

    Wait what? You have a wheel? That knock you hear is me and I'm holding.

    Regardless, deal.

    Back on topic'ish. I made a test run of the Gorgonzola/walnut/spinach pasta and it was way too tame. I need a much more in your face cheese. I'll go hunting tomorrow.

    Rodger that. Also, the recipe lacks milk product to make the cheese into a sauce. I'll add some heavy creme to the pan after spinach than cheese for that saucy thaing. Definitely stinky cheese.
