Happy thanksgiving. We’re in Miami at grandma’s house. She made a turkey and a ham with all the trimmings and the entire family was there, which is no small family, trust me.

Today we had left overs but she made a fabulous red beans and rice dish that was delicious.

@Rockhead,
We're still in Miami and I have Puerto Ricans coming out my ears here, I can't understand half of what their saying.

So true!


Sure is true. I loved the way they were flicked off the plate! Only reasonable thing to do with them!

@33export,
I don't think dead trees are meant by the branch in branch water.

@margo,
I usually hate brussel sprouts but this year, at the Thankksgiving dinner for the drillers, we had brussle sprouts as a side dish, they were cooked in a broth that was really flavorful, then they were cut in half an quick seared until a deep brown around the edges. Then served in a bitter garlic reduction,'DAMN GOOD

We’re home from Miami and I have another turkey in the oven. We spent it with family now it’s Thanksgiving for just the three of us.

@farmerman,
I don't dislike Brussels sprouts, but I rarely think about making them except at Thanksgiving, when they are always one of the the green vegetables on the table.

I like the petite Brussels sprouts, which I can usually only find frozen, but that's fine with me. If I use the larger sized, I always cut them in half, the way you had them. The bitterness of the sprouts contrasts perfectly with the sweetness of the other Thanksgiving foods--a candied sweet potato and granny smith apple combo, my homemade cranberry/orange/pineapple relish--that are always on the menu. And I love the sprouts just tossed with some sesame oil, which gives them a very nice flavor.

I think Brussels sprouts often get an undeserved bad rap.

You guys must really like turkey. Laughing

I like it too--especially leftover turkey sandwiches with my cranberry relish and coleslaw. They are always messy to eat, but yum...
