Any way you slice that turkey, Fellow FoodBeest, Thanksgiving can be high stress. This week the pre- Turkey-Day plan is to avoid eating anything that vaguely resembles poultry. And comfort food looks like a very, very good idea.
Every year my son Josh (the chef) contributes his winter squash soup our Thanksgiving dinner`. It is stunningly amazing. Sweet with just a touch of tartness and rich and complex with a bit of a kick, this soup is perfect for these days of changing weather.
I have my list of go-to foods that I make over and over because they’re good, fast, familiar and easy. There are other foods – like turkey tetrazzini – that I make only once-a-year. Not because they’re hard to make, but because they’re seasonal and indulgent and they become special that way.
I am a firm believer that there are three great things about hosting Thanksgiving at your house.
1. You get to be with family. As many of them as can cram their way around your table.
2. You get to pick at the carcass to your heart’s content after dinner.
3. You get to make turkey tetrazzini later that week.
