Gravy. If you are from Hawaii, gravy is a necessity. And you need LOTS and LOTS of it. For years now, this has been the problem child. You can't start it until the turkey's done, and then it takes too darned long to finish. And people start getting testy. So we're trying make-ahead gravy with crimini mushrooms, porcini mushrooms and vermouth. I hope it tastes good because we're going to have a quart of the stuff.
Pineapple cranberry sauce--We did once this a long time ago. I can't remember if it was pineapple juice, or the liquid from canned pineapple. Trying with pineapple juice, chunks of pineapple and orange juice. Sounds like a good idea.
Apple cranberry pie with oatmeal streusel--it's our transparent attempt say, "Well it has to be a little good for you if it has apples and oatmeal in it." In addition to the pecan and pumpkin pies.
I'll let you know how it turns out. And tell me what your favorite Thanksgiving foods are!
Wishing you and your Ohana a Happy Thanksgiving. Eat Well. Be Well.
