Thanskgiving Dinner - 2008
We were invited for Thanksgiving Dinner with friends in Sonoma. It was quite a spread.
As always this time of year, there are a lot of stories about American overeating on Turkey day. A typical story reports that the average consumption is 4,500 calories and half of if from fat. That is average - as in - you need a lot of people to eat more than that to maintain the average. I am proud to say that I am among those who are pulling up the curve. I am guessing that I was somewhere north of 6000 calories just during the dinner proper.
Sigrid's wild rice and mushroom soup was our contribution to the feast. With a cream and butter base, it is probably good for 1,000 calories all by itself. I had two helpings.
Main course. Stuffing, mashed potatoes (with onions - yum), gravy, creamed corn, spinach, biscuit, and yes - I grabbed a drumstick. Unseen - yams and cranberries that were added for seconds.
Lee's bourbon pecan pie with homemade whipped cream. My job is done. The average is safe for another year.
