I stopped by last night to leave some kind wishes and it was no go. Commenting seemed to be closed.

So, a belated but sincere happy Thanksgiving and my best to you.

I hope you and yours had a beautiful, thoroughly enjoyable celebration yesterday, Ms. Shaw.

Did you go "traditional" with your holiday feast, or did you venture into a different, possibly unique culinary province?

I'm on a no-starch, low-sugar diet right now, so I improvised a dessert, and sliced up several McIntosh apples,layered them up in a Pyrex pie dish with a scattering of raisins, very few craisins, and a small handful of coarsely chopped walnuts. all this was sprinkled gently with cinnamon, powdered ginger, a tiny pinch of powered cloves, lightly dusted with one level tablespoonful of light brown sugar, dotted with butter, covered tightly, then microwaved for four minutes just before serving.

I hate to sound immodest, but it tasted wonderful.

CONFESSION: Against my better judgment I did eat some stuffing and gravy, but only a small amount. Just between you and me, I thought it contained entirely too much sage, but the bird, itself, was beautifully cooked, Even the breast meat remained moist.

Nevertheless, I wish the Pilgrims had serve GOOSE instead of TURKEY on that First Thanksgiving. It's much more succulent treat.

Happy days!

FT, I stay traditional, with some dishes that have been influenced by my Italian heritage, which calls this holiday "la festa di reingraziamente."

We started off with straciatella soup,, but now I make the butternut squash soup, then turkey and all the trimmings: homemade sausage, apple, dried cranberry stuffing, string beans with pancetta, sun dried tomatoes, and pignole nuts, mashed potatoes, carmelized pearl onions, homemade cranberry sauce. After the turkey, we usually have roasted chestnuts, assorted roasted nuts, and fruit.

For dessert: apple and pumpkin pie, and pizza dolce di ricotta.

Caffe correctto after we've eaten.
