And just what are kids of gravy, and how do they fit inside a turkey?

It's so fun taking things out of context.

Mine is very similar but I add a little cayenne, a little fresh ground ginger and a little curry powder. It needs a little kick - just enough to be interesting. Then serve with a small dollop of sour cream in the center of the soup and top with chopped parsley. It's fabulous but also quite hearty so you may want to serve polite portions before a large meal.

We often eat this soup as a meal with a salad and a generous amount of crispy bread.

Yes, it is filling. I served it in little 4-ounce coffee cups. I should make it more often. DH loves peanut anything.

Let's talk Thanksgiving

I planned a lovely beef roast for Thanksgiving this year but my brother was so disappointed when he heard that I decided to do yet another turkey. I will be bribing and spatchcocking it this time. But I need some new twists on the sides. I can't diverge too much from the traditional North American fare but I thought I would consider doing twice baked sweet potatoes with pecans and marshmallows nestled inside. Still trying to think of something else fabulous. How about you?

Ummmm....that should be brining. I have never had to bribe a turkey yet and I do not intend to start now. lol

I wonder if there is a way I can arrange a tiny pan of stuffing under a spatchcocked bird so the stuffing gets that old fashioned in the bird stuffing flavor without sucking up all of the pan juices. I only need a tiny amount of stuffing because dh prefers Stovetop. Go figure.
