Tine has run out for me to write a more in depth post. I'm leaving in less than hour for the airport for London!
Just in case you're still recipe planning for Thanksgiving. At our early holiday celebration, we opted for:
Brussels Sprout Hash (epicurious)
Stuffing with dried cherries, smoked ham, and goat cheese (epicurious)
Pumpkin cheesecake with pecan praline topping (food and wine)
Molasses and sherry vinegar glazed carrots (epicurious)
In addition to our family standards. I'll provide the full scoop and pics when I return. Suffice it to say I loved all of these recipes, especially the cheesecake, and I highly recommend them.
