Giving Thanks, part 3

December 8th, 2011 by veronica

Our third and final Thanksgiving dinner was at the home of the Molloys, just a week after the real T-Day. Darcy outdid herself with a beautiful pancetta-wrapped roast and other guests contributed all kinds of traditional yummy side dishes. I’ve been making the same side dish to bring to all of these dinners and it’s consistently a hit, always requested over and over again. Of course, it’s the simplest, easiest thing to make: roasted squash. Want a recipe? Here you go: slice squash, drizzle with salt and oil, roast at 435 for 15 minutes. Done. If you want to get fancy, sprinkle some sage over the top.

Whew! what a dinner! Now that our Thanksgiving dinners are over, we can start preparing for the onslaught of December holiday dinners — bring it on!
