|Fresh herbs from Satur Farms for our turkey dinner|
Yesterday after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, I hit the kitchen and didn’t leave all day.
Despite working with an oven that belongs on another planet, Thursday’s Thanksgiving meal in my NYC kitchen was a success with more food than any gourmand could handle.
|The “B” oven–you can see how teeny tiny it is.|
The menu was filled with butter and cream, just the way Julia Child recommended. Luckily I’ve never had a fear of either.
Lemon Herb-Buttered Turkey with both white and dark meat (roasted in parts, of course!)
Salmon en Croute
Apple Sage Bread Stuffing
Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Chives
Sweet Potatoes with Horseradish & Cream
Pan Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Shallots
Whole Cranberry Sauce
Creamy Corn Casserole
Pumpkin Pie with Fresh Whipped Cream
|Brussel sprouts and turkey breast–I’m finishing up the feast!|
|Gary’s Salmon en croute–delectable!|
|These are sweet potatoes not yams!|
|Heather’s creamy corn casserole|

And in case your wondering, there were only four of us (humans). The furry members of our family — Bogey, Mimi, and Gypsy — never slept so well from a tryptophan overdose. They resembled stuffed animals after the gargantuan meal.

We wrapped plenty of leftovers to enjoy through the weekend. (I’ll be digging into my cold turkey sandwich shortly.)
Now we’re onto bigger and better things—it’s the most wonderful time of the year in New York City. As the turned autumn leaves begin to fall and winter approaches, let the shopping, decorating, and baking begin.
|Autumn will be over in a few more weeks and Christmas is around the corner.|
The phrase “If you’re afraid of butter, use cream,” was made famous by Julia Child.
