Next to Greek Easter, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday to be cooking and planning a feast! We used all local vegetables from the Brussels sprouts I grew to the potatoes, carrot and onions from our CSA. Adams turkey farm raised our delicious bird just across town, Heather from Sweet Clover wrote a few words about the farm. Prince Charming and I made a flavorful maple turkey brine and after twenty four hours in the brine the turkey was cooked to perfection!
Now, we are clearly onto more holiday endeavors such as fruit cake and stollen! The fruit cakesare baked and being soaked with cognac and Grand Marnier as we speak. Christmas Eve dinner will be chorizo and artichoke paella pared with Chateauneuf Du Pape.
