Since we still had a turkey, my Charles and I decided to do Thanksgiving dinner last night. I brined it as planned, though if I had to do it over again, I would have brined the turkey in two bottles of wine instead of one and cooked it a bit less. I always forget that free range turkeys cook more quickly. I made our favorite green beans, sans uber expensive pine nuts. I made some amazing mashed potatoes from the last surviving bit of our CSA, and I threw together a quick pumpkin pie. It may have been a bit late, but my Charles and I enjoyed the meal. We paired it with a Navarro Gewurztraminer (one of our favorite wines from our absolute favorite winery). It was a lovely meal, and I got to share it with my favorite person in the world.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and even if it ended up being a little late or had some pitfalls along the way, I hope it was satisfying in the end.
