In the spirit of Thxgiving, I thought I'd share a little love with you all, my dear dear readers (all 10 of you). First, I want to share a few recipes with you. This year, I was put in charge of a few appetizers and the cranberry sauce, which is really somewhat of a slap in the face considering I am an incredible! cook, but hey, I will not decline any attempt at making my day easier. Here is what I'm making. (I'm not including pics because otherwise you'll end up drooling all over your keyboard).
Cranberry Sauce with Port and Cinnamon, this is my first time making this, but it has like 6 ingredients so it'll be easy-peasy (Mr. T has been over-using that term lately, so it's stuck in my head even though I despise it with a seething passion ). Plus, any time you can add booze to a recipe, you know it'll be good.
Herbed Cream Cheese Cucumber Rounds, my favorite healthy hors d'oeuvres, and if you're completely anal like me you can top each round with exactly 3 granules of sea salt just before serving (don't add them too far ahead of time because the salt makes the cucumber "sweat"). I use lowfat cream cheese to make it even healthier. And no matter what you think about the dash of cayenne, it is absolutely essential! so don't forget it.
Chicks in a Blanket, incredibly tasty, even though it sounds a little tacky. I mean, couldn't they have come up with a better, more gourmet name---like Chicken and Apple Sausage Pastries? But seriously, how awesome does smoked chicken/apple sausage with dijon mustard wrapped in puff pastry sound to you? If I could fill up the bathrub and lay in these, I would.
Second, I'd like to share turkey cartoons that feature blind men with you, because for some reason, they make me chuckle every time. Those goshdarn turkeys just really know how to pull one over on the blind man. Crafty little buggers.
