Well, as I have done for many years now, I am home today following this well-precedented preparation for chocolate pecan pie. I will post a picture of the end product, which I strongly recommend for its vitamin content and general benefits! Next post here will be on some book recommendations – that will go up either Friday or Monday.
Tomorrow is more cooking. We will be preparing our standard menu around here, and that means roasted turkey (we buy a kosher one, since that means someone else brined it for us), stuffing (my mother-in-law’s recipe, with seasoned bread cubes, onion, celery, apples, whole cranberries, and diced pepperoni sausage (hey, it works), Iranian “morasa pullo” (which is basmati rice with saffron, zereshk (dried barberries), slivered almonds, pistachios, and bits of orange peel), pan-roasted brussel sprouts, satueéd mushrooms with garlic, green beans (some cooked with country ham in them, some roasted without), onions in cream gravy with sage, mashed potatoes, home-made cranberry sauce, and of course turkey gravy. To my American readers who are celebrating Thanksgiving, have a great holiday!
