Since it has now been several days since Thanksgiving, I thought it might finally be time to chat a little bit about what went on at my own celebration. I didn’t want to start blogging pictures the night of because all of you who celebrated the holiday as well were probably just as stuffed as I was. With all the food and commotion, I believe that Thanksgiving is one of those major holidays that we need some time to process. So, since everyone has had plenty of time to digest and eat as many leftovers as possible, let’s treat this series of snippets as a kind of Thanksgiving victory lap.
Obviously, to start off with one of the most important dishes of Thanksgiving, I present you with our turkey. Rather than go the traditional route, this year I opted to try an Adobo Turkey with Red Chile Gravy from Gourmet. Thanks to a deep, savory blend of ancho and guajillo chiles in both the marinade and the gravy, this turkey really amped up the warm, comforting vibe of Thanksgiving. Not to mention the fact that my family practically inhaled it within the immediate 24 hours surrounding that day.
