Good Morning Steepsterites! I survived Thanksgiving! I cooked for 22. We managed to offer a relaxed, leisurely paced over five hour feast on Thursday for our guests. I made the traditional Italian American twist on Thanksgiving by having first antipasti, then Escarole soup (some people call it Italian Wedding soup) then ravioli course, then the Turkey and all the trimmings course. Dessert ended the meal, and I was smiling and tired. Like every year, I barely ate a thing because as soon as I served a course, I was working on getting everything ready for the next one!
The real fun for me comes on the next day. Leftovers! I always make extra so I can slowly savor the different dishes. I had a heaping plate of sausage stuffing and gravy with a side of sweet potatoes for lunch yesterday. For dinner, the ravioli with a huge side of broccoli rabe. While we were watching a movie, Vanilla Comoro and a slice of homemade pecan pie!
I’ve praised Vanilla Comoro over and over on this site :) but I also want to say that I am very THANKFUL for it. I am so grateful that Harney and Sons offers such a full flavored decaf tea, and I am so happy that I was introduced to it by the wonderful ashmanra. I am so thrilled that I get to share it with all of you through tasting notes. As I drank my tea and ate my pie, I thought of you all, and felt very thankful indeed.
