Questions about turkey can only mean one thing: American Thanksgiving is on the horizon. Thanks to some local expat friends we too will be celebrating this annual feast of gluttony in a few weeks time. After typing up the answers to this week’s meme, Thanksgiving and all its wondrously yummy foods cannot come soon enough!
1. Stuffing. Boxed or from scratch?
Hubby introduced me to the glories of Stove Top Stuffing shortly after we were married as it represents one of his favourite childhood memories. That said, nothing tastes as good as stuffing made from scratch and cooked in the bird.
2. If you were served the perfect Thanksgiving dinner what would it be?
In my prefect, pretend world we would start with my father’s curried pumpkin soup. From there we will move to the main course which will include a roasted turkey, two kinds of stuffing (chestnut and mushroom), gravy, homemade cranberry sauce, potatoes (any kind but roasted would be nice), peas, carrots, beans, and cauliflower with homemade cheese sauce. For dessert I would like pumpkin pie and orange pudding.
Please note that this meal may be served again in its entirety (with a few additions) next month for Christmas.
3. What’s your favorite Thanksgiving leftover?
Not there there’s any ever leftover, but I love a good stuffing sandwich!
4. Share a recipe using turkey.
Now that I’ve given myself a craving for all things turkey here is the perfect stuffing sandwich:
Slather leftover cranberry sauce on one side of two pieces of whole wheat bread. On top of the cranberry goodness place leftover slices of turkey. Finally, when no one is looking, steal the leftover stuffing and distribute it evenly over the turkey. Cap your sandwich with its twin slice of bread and eat.
Your sandwich should taste exactly Thanksgiving – only whole wheat-ier.
