An odd sort of Turkey Day...
But a special request from the Belgian cousins. (Ah I rue the day I introduced Jenny's father - my first cousin- to an American Thankgiving feast in ...) Now, whenever any of them visit, I must try and find a turkey to roast as they all want to revisit the experience! This in NOT easy to do in Corfu. Turkey is something Greeks eat only around Christmas- at least that's when it's in the stores! Fortunately the British Store in Perama still had one. [they actually had TWO but I didn't have room in the freezer to take the other one, which probably means that little bugger will be the only turkey in Corfu this coming November (American Thanksgiving)- unless someone else gets it first...]
So. T. has gone off with the cousins this AM to Sidari, and everyone will have a lovely time. They should all return around five. Meanwhile, I am gearing up to make a rum raisin cheesecake and roast and stuff a turkey. (at least I found one!!!) We have some patty pan squash from the garden so I will bake a little squash and pinapple and sultana thing to go with it. I have some homemade applesauce already made and chilling and we'll have a big pan of Irish mashed potatoes to go with the gravy. Not exactly the menu I would have picked for the depths of summer, but hey, it's going to be cooler today! [ F/ C]
