Guests


My parents are coming over to visit. They land Friday and staying a week, over Thanksgiving. So I have decided we will spend Thanksgiving day cooking the food, drinking wine/beer and having the Macy's parade on tv in the background.

I got myself a beautiful pie dish at Williams and Sonoma along with Pecan-Pumpkin butter to use for the filling. Will get dad to cut out the acorn and leaves to decorate the top.

The main will be brined Turkey breast, they sell organic free range dito at Whole Foods. And sides I am thinking normal mash, sweet potatoe casserole with marshmallows and cranberry sauce. I think we will also have to cook green bean casserole even if it sounds the weirdest dish ever - I mean green beans with mushroom soup and ready friend onions on top? But when in Rome.

You have to recognize the legitimacy of green bean casserole when you find that the recipe is on the actual fried onion container! :) Sounds like you're doing a great version of US thanksgiving.

Have got a hungarian green bean casserole, requires some saffron and some sour cream, let me know if you need it. The dish looks great. Think you are going to have a wicked first TG. B xxxxx
