Washington DC and The Holy Land>Thanksgiving 2019
HonestChieffan 08:58 AM 11-12-2019


We are just a couple weeks away from Thanksgiving Day and started making plans for celebrating the day. Here is a good read on history:
https://carm.org/thanksgiving

We have done Turkey about every way possible and we seem to alway go back to traditional side dishes...Sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, fruit salad, cranberries, even mashed potatoes and of course dressing.

So many things we all have to be thankful for!!

What do you all do? Anything not as traditional?

And I hope that anyone who decides to try it, regardless of the exact version, enjoys it. One thing that I am trying this year, that I can post the recipe to, is Lighthouse Inn Potatoes. I'll post it in a follow up post.
Looks delicious. Is it spicy? I have family members that don't do spicy.

Put a warm bacon vinaigrette dressing on roasted sprouts.

If it's your birthday, why not a Victorian era game pie in a hot water crust. You must recall eating those back in your day. :-)

You can adjust the level of spice you want, both with the separate spices in the recipe (red pepper or flakes) and with the heat of the particular chourico. Not only that but, if your family really can't handle spice well at all, you can try substituting linguica for chourico.

Here's a list of a few makers/sellers. They've got a bunch of options to choose from. I don't know what you can find in your area, but these are available online.

Around here we've tried just about everything, including deep-fried wild turkeys, smoked, turducken, sous vide (that was a lot of trouble) etc. The last few years we've gone traditional.

This year I'm planning on putting deep-fried okra on the table as well as a smoked honey glazed ham (4-lb.). Only my second smoked ham attempt so crossing my fingers on that.

Twenty years ago we tried prime rib roasts, stuffed pork loin roasts, giant broiled lobster tails (almost 2-lbers), a Dungeness crab boil . . . probably a couple other things. Oh, roasted and smoked geese a couple times that my dad shot when I was a kid.

Also, in our tradition, there's always white rice and kim chee on the table, as well as a few other traditional Korean celebratory dishes.

Smoking a honey baked is a simple and cool thing....for my taste go with fruitwood and avoid hickory and pecan...startit at room temp and pull that child at 145 and its all good

Just so I understand, "chourico" is basically the Portuguese version of chorizo, right? I know they probably taste different, just trying to get an idea of the spicy level.

I'm still considering woods. I thought maybe applewood would be a good choice, plus I happen to have about 8 lbs. of it lying around.

Donít recall the specifics, yanked the recipe from some cooking site, but basically...

Fresh beans
Fresh mushrooms
Heavy cream
Tiny bit of turmeric
Fresh cracked black pepper
Sea salt
Real butter
A little cornstarch to slightly thicken the cream
Last years recipe called for freshly made onion topper, but I cheated a bit and went with good ol Durkee... Iíll prolly go ahead and make the breaded and lightly fried fresh version this year

Iíll also mince the mushroom before sautťing instead of using big slices again

It would seem, per this post by a moderator:

that your assistance isn't required.
