Thanksgiving Dinner Ideas

16 Dec Thanksgiving dinner

Did you stuff yourself on Thanksgiving? We had turkey, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, and sourdough stuffing (in honor of San Fran).

We experimented a bit and basted the turkey in Arrogant Bastard Ale. The gravy certainly had a punch to it. It tasted like hops. I think next year I would prefer to make gravy through the traditional route.

I, again, made my famous caramel shortbread squares. This time, instead of using straight chocolate for the topping, I used ganache. It made the cookie much smoother (and less healthy, which means it tastes better, right?).
