Sweet potatoes roasted with star anise, allspice berries, and cloves, then run through a food mill and mixed with butter and maple syrup; kale braised with apples, garlic, and homemade chicken stock, topped with pecans.
Stuffing of focaccia, chestnuts, Jerusalem artichokes, carrots, caramelized pearl onions, garlic, and herbs; cranberry sauce with ginger and tangerine.
Roberta, done in a mere hour and a half! Juicy and flavorful, especially thanks to the herb butter under the skin and the sage leaves over. Fifteen pounds is a lot of turkey for three people. I don't like frozen meat, so it's turkey-something every day for the rest of the week.
Caramel pumpkin pie--so good. Someday I'll learn how to do streusel. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
