If it's edible, why leave it behind?
A shame I didn't think to ask to take the shells home to make bisque.

Indeed, especially when one factors in the cost of a whole-lobster restaurant meal. Yours is a very thorough technique.

It's been a few years since this occasion, but I am not sure subsequent commitments that evening would have conduced to getting the shells home and refrigerated in a timely manner.

For the pumpkin purée, I cooked the pie pumpkins one at a time in the Instant Pot.


The skin falls right off, the flesh separates easily from the seeds. Puréed in the blender and liquid squeezed out.


I use a store bought graham cracker crust. Easy and yummy.

Thank you, Menolly!

A couple hours from now, I'm going to walk up to a neighborhood pot luck and get some food to take home. I plan to relax and talk with the neighbors for a few moments. Will be wearing a mask. After eating that holiday feast with my family, I plan to make eggnog from one of those recipes in the Eggnog thread.

Might even post again in that Eggnog thread, if the notion takes me. Cheers

Purty turkey, cooked to temperature, not to when the "pop-up" indicator says it's ready.

Yesterday's bountiful meal.


The spread, starting from the far end and working counter clockwise:
Homemade Cranberry Orange Sauce. I'm pretty sure this is the version my friend Cristal gave me. I've added a sprig of fresh rosemary, a 1" piece of fresh ginger cut into coins, and an eighth of a cup of bourbon to the recipe over the years.

Platter of carved turkey.

damsel's pumpkin bread. It was made yesterday and we couldn't wait...

Crockpot stuffing.

SD's green bean casserole.

Sweet potato casserole.

The thermos is how I keep the gravy warm. We screw off the top and pour it directly out of the thermos, instead of using the spigot in the top. This year I made Chef Alex Guarnaschelli's recipe which uses roasted garlic and onions blended with some of the stock and drippings to thicken. The texture was perfect and the taste fantastic. Now, if it stays pourable when chilled, instead of becoming gelatinous, it's the perfect gravy recipe for me.


My plate before gravy...


...and after.


A slice of pumpkin pie with fresh made whipped cream piped on top.

I had a good, if untraditional, thanksgiving meal in Chicago with the in-laws. I had herb grilled chicken with pesto gnocchi and peas and a side of truffle Mac and cheese. Mrs. High Lord is allergic to celery, which was in basically everything in the thanksgiving meal so she had a salad.

I don't like celery, so I make everything without it. Nothing actually needs it.

Thanksgiving Monté Cristo Sandwich

I made my usual Bennigans copy cat method, but I made some slight changes to finish off more of the planned overs. Instead of a third slice of bread inside the sandwich, I used a whipped egg to bind some planned over stuffing, shaped it into a patty equal to a slice of the bread I was using, and pan fried it until it held together. Once that was layered over the bottom level of the sandwich, I used some cold gravy on top of it as my spread before putting the turkey on the top level.

I follow this recipe for the basic method, although I divide by 3, as half a sandwich is enough for me with the other half to share or package to be rewarmed for another meal. The rest of the cranberry sauce for dipping.
