Here's something I seldom make at home. Baked salmon, teriyaki glaze.

Also some glazed carrots, green beans and a small zuke with a little bit of brown sugar, butter, ginger and cardamom. Made this mix to see if any of the veggies might work as a Thanksgiving side dish. While I truly like cardamom, I probably will look a different recipe. I think I made fresh gingered carrots for one of the holidays last year-- they were very good, whatever I did.

We had salads with mixed greens (romaine, arugula, spinach, radish greens), then Himself tried to finish up the quick spaghetti sauce I made earlier to use with the last of the lasagna, while I did finish off the creamy chicken-wild rice soup. But the star of supper was cake. Not just any cake, but a divine 7-layer torte. Big enough slice for the two of us to share - twice! Except this time we just split the slice. *blort*

Question

What is in the cake? Looks like layers of sponge and chocolate...butter icing? It looks similar to an Italian style cake except that would also have some alcohol drenching the sponge.

Pasta with tasso ham (homemade Cajun spice cured/smoked pork), green and yellow squash, carrots, zucchini in a cream/chicken broth sauce with some parm stirred in at the last plus some on top.

Deliciousness. ;-) You pretty much got it right from the photo. It's from the grocery store ~ they have a very good bakery department.
