I'm having my father-in-law and brother-in-law over for the holiday. With them simple is better but I still go a bit crazy. It's just about 7 a.m. and I'm heading to the kitchen to start cooking. We're heading out at 2 p.m. to a gathering then pick up the relatives to bring them back to the house.
Here's the menu for today:
Honey and Thyme Brined Turkey Breast
Haricot Verts with Shiitakes
1/2 done pickled tomatoes (that is for me - no one else will eat that).
Ham cooked with mango and onions glazed with fruit nectar
Pumpkin Pie (baked already)
Olive Oil Cake (baked already) - still need to do the lemon curd
Yes all this for 4 people but plenty to send home with the father-in-law.
So I'm off and running...if you need me you know where I'll be all morning.
