Thanksgiving 2013

First we were going to be in the Netherlands for Thanksgiving. Then Oscar ended up with an abrasion on his cornea. We postponed our trip, then cancelled it. Meanwhile, planning a Thanksgiving dinner here didn't get along very far. Instead, I defrosted some slices of Tandoori-Style Roast Turkey Breast for our turkey bit.  As go-withs there were two old favorites, Indian Mashed Potatoes (Q&E, p90) and Tangy Green Beans with Ajwain and Ginger (SpiceKitch, p38), along with the last bit of tamarind chutney from the freezer. The green beans were some brought to us by a neighbor when their garden overflowed, very Thanksgiving-like. We served this with a bottle of the gold-prize-winning St Sornin rosé La Fenêtre. And there was a pumpkin pie for dessert. That's all, folks.
