Between phone calls to my mother for recipe tips and hanging out with the entire crew of fools tomorrow, I will be cooking things. And not just any things, chilren, but disgustingly fattening things. Some of you know I have been on a diet. Tomorrow is a reprieve. Tomorrow is a Dionysian display of wine, cheese and napping. Boy do I heart turkey lurkey.
Celery Bisque (as I am not a fan of Stilton, I will be using something else)
Butternut Squash and Mushroom Lasagna (remove about 30 ounces of ricotta, and you still have 15 left, adding in more mushrooms and perhaps eggplant)
cucumber/dill salad with rice vinegar (to even out the butter overdose)
stuffing with Mom's recipe and sourdough bread from Lucca
That being said, though I luuuuurve my mama's stuffing like any kid should, there was a friendly man at the grocery today who suggested the sweet taters in the first place, then said "you drizzle some of that butter and sugar left over from the sweet potatos on your stuffing, see? All sweet, buttery and good."
Happy Thanksgiving, yall. Hug all your loved ones and eat lotsa food.
