Friendgiving recap, and planning

Posted by Jeanne on February 27, 2011

Friendgiving was fabulous.  FABULOUS.  There was roast turkey, and grilled turkey breast with a bacon mat.

Yes, the bacon mat.


Turkey breast wrapped in the bacon mat.  Sooooooo good.

Also, Curt and Megan had a green-bean off.  Megan insists that green bean casserole must be made with canned green beans; Curt believes that it should rightfully be made with frozen green beans and homemade sauce.

And then we topped it with bacon for good measure.  I think my sister’s boyfriend put it best when he said that Curt made good green beans, but that Megan made good green bean casserole.

The final menu was:

  • Spinach artichoke dip
  • Havarti shrimp
  • Smoked salmon + capers, creme fraiche, onions
  • Turkey (roasted, cider-brine and grilled, bacon wrapped)
  • Gravy
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Swiss potato gratin
  • Green bean casserole two ways (canned vs. frozen)
  • Whipped sweet potatoes
  • Dressing
  • Corn spoonbread
  • Roast carrots
  • Date & toffee cupcakes
  • Pie (apple and peach/raspberry)

It was amazingly good.

Why can’t I change that font?  So annoying.


Our meal plan for this week is as follows:

Turkey meatloaf & mashed potatoes/cauliflower

Turkey & noodle soup

Portuguese green soup

Mapo tofu & rice

Chicken & black bean enchiladas

Aloo gobi & rice

Pasta with Italian sausage & spinach

Hummus wraps & Greek salad (really, just salad with feta and a vinaigrette heavy on the oregano)

Should be a good week.

    Mmm, bacon wrapped turkey breast. Still thinking about it. That makes up for Curt using frozen green beans…
