Yesterday (Thanksgiving) we went to visit our friends, Carol and Mark. They provided a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner and I brought buttermilk rolls to round out the dinner of braised rabbit, green beans, mashed potatoes, and cippolini onions, with a lemon icebox cake for dessert. It was delicious!
Today, Michael and I had our own 'mini' Thanksgiving dinner. We split two cornish game hens in half and roasted them in a 350F oven for an hour on a bed of the usual turkey stuffing (stuffing bread cubes, sauteed mild Italian sausage, an onion and 3 ribs of diced celery all moistened with chicken broth, 2 eggs and a bit o' homemade romano cheese). For an additional 20 minutes we raised the temperature to 400F and completed roasting the little birds. Michael made some gravy and we added cranberry sauce and steamed spinach to finish the meal. We were so full from yesterday that we split a half a birdie, then had pies for dessert (sweet potatoe pie for me, sweet potato pecan pie for Michael). Yes, we had another Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat. We have leftovers too, but not the gigantic turkey that usually feeds us with soup and leftovers for the next month! Next year maybe we only need one little bird for the two of us!
