What’s for Thanksgiving Dinner?
Special holiday delivery, straight from the fields of Sauvie Island Organics to my home. We’re headed over-the-river-and-through-the-woods, the in-laws having declared, “We’ll take care of the turkey; you bring the veggies!” My Thanksgiving dream-come-true! I love that I can ignore the big bird, and focus all my time and attention on the infinite possibilities of veggie sides. For some reason, I feel the need to be all-inclusive. Each and every veggie I’m picking up today is bound for the holiday table in some way, shape, or form. And even though I’m not part of the official dessert crew, pie is not something I can easily resist making. The recipes below highlight an often forgotten about but magnificent vegetable – the fresh pumpkin! Oh, plus pecan pie, which highlights absolutely no veggie at all. But once a year, that magical combination of corn syrup, brown sugar, and vanilla just can’t be topped! Oh, and the turkey? I’m sure it couldn’t be happier surrounded by this beautiful northwest bounty.
