This year it isn't looking to bright on our own thanksgiving, we're so busy we probably aren't going to do anything other than head over to the in laws which I am perfectly fine with. But HAD I been planning anything I would have wanted to try something really new this year. In fact I was thinking Chocolate and turkey... I know right??
am I nuts??
No, actually that is really common and completely normal.. though my sweet baboo says I am insane lol. Especially since I was given this GREAT Quinoa stuffing recipe.
No I am not out to ruin my hubby's idea of Thanksgiving... just VERY curious :), I mean look at the recipes:
Ingredients1/2 cup olive oil
2 large red onions, chopped fine (save the onion skin)
6 cups strong green jasmine tea, decaf ok
1 tablespoon turmeric
2 tablespoons paprika
Dozen bay leaves, or 2 teaspoons ground
1 tablespoon ground pepper
1 12 to 14 pound turkey, preferably fresh, or frozen and completely thawed
1 cup Dagoba Chocolate Drops
Ingredients1 1/4 cups TruRoots organic quinoa
2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 cup zucchini, cubed
1/2 cups butternut squash, cubed
1 tablespoon coconut oil (may substitute olive oil)
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
sea salt, to taste
freshly ground pepper, to taste
So it might have sounded a little adventurous but I bet it would have been worth cheating on my vegetarian diet for!
What have you done that was considered "a little crazy" by your family?? food wise during the holidays.
