That was my nephew’s question after picking two things that I didn’t cook…….I need to learn how to make dinner rolls!!
Anyway, I’m down here in Ohio with Mindy’s family. I wasn’t responsible for making the turkey so that left room for me to make sure the sides were taken care of. I made 11 sides!
Sorry for the pictures being a little dark, I’m sure it will ruin your day.
The picture above was my showcase, it was butternut squash ravioli with a white wine reduction sauce and candied pecans.
Parmesan Crisps with a Cranberry Apple Chutney
Baked Yam Mini-Pizzas. Baked Yam medallions with a little sauce and cheese on top.
My mom’s stuffing…….None of that bread stuff….GO MEAT!
Tomatoes Duxelle. French food is genius.
Green Beans, Brussels Sprouts, and Brocolli blanched then sauteed and covered with a bechamel sauce.
Red Potatoes with Mom’s stuffing and bacon!
Butternut Squash Soup ala Sip Seattle style. Muah haha haaha
Mindy made her famous mashed potatoes!
There was also a butternut squash pan gravy, molten lava chocolate cake, and I made breakfast that morning.
Frittata Eggs Benedict with a Hollandaise served with orange supreme and raspberry balsamic reduction.
More cooking tonight!
It was nice having helpers otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to pull this off. Good stuff. They wanted to “learn”….I just didn’t want to prep on my day off
