Back in November, when I was taking a break to focus on school, we hosted a small dinner party to celebrate American Thanksgiving. Even though it is now just after Christmas, I’d still like to share this meal with you. Why? Because it was delicious and I feel like it was generic enough to serve for any special occasion.
Last year, our American Thanksgiving dinner was much more traditional.
This year, we decided to change things up for a number of reasons… a whole turkey is just too much for 3-4 people (we got sick of the leftovers) and I worked until 7 pm and needed something that could be prepared quickly.
So this year, the menu consisted of things I could (mostly) prepare the night before and cook quickly when I arrived home.
- Appetizer: Deviled eggs
- Main dish: Duck breast with a port reduction
- Side dish: Roasted potatoes with fresh thyme
- Side dish: Spicy green beans with garlic
Our dear friend W brought home-made treats made by his mother. They were a fantastic way to finish off the meal!
Over the next few posts, I’ll share each of the recipes!
