My US readers will mostly be sitting around digesting turkey by now -that's about all I'm doing, although I hope to work up enough energy to take the telescope out into the back yard and show the relatives what's going on on Jupiter.
The menu here was pretty much our standard: an 18-pound kosher turkey (I like the brining), stuffed with my mother-in-law's proprietary mixture of bread cubes, apples, celery, onions, and pepperoni. (Not sure where she came up with that one, either, but it gets demolished by the entire table of guests every year). The big side dish is shirin pullo, also from the Iranian side of the family - that's basmati rice with slivered almonds, thin bits of orange peel, dried barberries, and saffron). Then mashed potatoes (only time I ever use the potato ricer gadget), gravy (from the turkey pan, with some added mushrooms and onions and thickened with roux), green beans with country ham (from my Arkansas side of things), brussel sprouts (caramelized in the pan a bit), sauteed mushrooms, my wife's homemade cranberry sauce, and some sweet potatoes with brown sugar. Add the two pies I made last night (pumpkin and chocolate pecan), and I'm not sure if I'm going to make it out to the yard or not. . .
