Thanksgiving Open Post
As usual the Dwyer home will be hosting a large gathering of family members for the holiday meal. We have 24 guests on the invite list. Our menu is always pretty traditional but I am trying a couple of new recipes. Ginger-glazed carrots from Edward Lee’s cookbook Smoke and Pickles and an oyster stuffing that a coworker told me her grandmother made every year back in Boston.
I am thankful for a lot this year, but more on that later. I’m still trying to find the right perspective to talk about the ups and downs of 2013. As for you, dear readers, what dishes are you making / looking forward to this year? How are you spending the holiday?
