Early Bird!

I’m liking our new tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving on Sunday; now I can relax and avoid this week’s grocery store crush. It may have been an early bird, but it was a pretty bird, decked out in lemons with flavors of sage. (I am grateful to Sparrow Meats in Kerrytown.)

Wild Rice Stuffing with Sausage and Fennel

Wild Rice Stuffing with Sausage and Fennel

It’s family treason to deviate from traditional recipes but I tweaked them, not one willing to leave well-enough alone, and updated the recipes from my last post. I added Grand Marnier to the Cranberry-Orange Relish (I am grateful to Rod Marsh for that tip), and tossed sautéed apples into the Wild-Rice, Sausage and Fennel Stuffing (I am grateful to Lucy Carnaghi for that suggestion).

I also substituted chard for the spinach in the stuffed mushrooms and added currants to the mix. The Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes I left, intact, as well the Sweet Potato-Pecan Pie.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, gratitude the greatest gift I can wish for you– sniffing the smells, smelling the love!
