Your Basic Thanksgiving Dinner

The turkey thanked us because we roasted a spatchcocked chicken this year. It was rubbed with garlic and pepper and basted with sage butter and came out great. Sides were green bean casserole with roasted garlic mushroom soup and fried red onions, candied sweet potatoes, sausage dressing, and a basic cranberry sauce with cinnamon and orange juice. We did have turkey gravy, I found a frozen container in the big freezer. Hawaiian rolls rounded out the dinner.

Breakfast Wreath

I bought some garlicy salami the other day and bet myself that it would make a tasty addition to any number of recipes.

I pulled it for a few minutes under the broiler to finish the top. Grated on some sharp cheddar and NOM!

Apple Pie!

This was going to be one of those food hack recipes using cinnamon rolls from the exploding can as crust. We had hopes!

Mistakes were made. Let’s not dwell on that.

We salvaged the apple filling, Mrs J made a nice crust for those and we made do with a basic apple pie.
