I am so glad Melissa garnered a ride from Chico with a Westwood couple. We had a delicious Thanksgiving dinner and then went to Susanville to see "Delivery Man". It was a fun, upbeat movie.
This year I did something different with my turkey. I made a paste of bacon, butter and herbs and put it underneath the skin. I think the breast was especially juicy. It took longer to bake though.
Melissa brought the pumpkin pie and I provided the rest. Instead of the cranberry salad I did the pistachio with the addition of pecans, mandarin oranges and red grapes. Very tasty that way.
I also made a gluten free stuffing by using my gluten free homebaked bread. Melissa liked it as well as I did! Anyway we had lots of left overs, that is a good thing and Sadie loved having turkey instead of canned dog food!
I also made the Paeo de Quiejo which is Cheese Bread made from Sour Cream, Parmesan Cheese and Tapioca Flour--supposedly like they eat in Brazil and Craig concurred with that. It is delicious and I found is good for sandwiches, too.
Great Thanksgiving...thanks for coming, Melissa.
