Happy Thanksgiving!

This year we decided to skip the traditional turkey and just go for two regular roasted chickens. There was just too many ‘toos’ in the turkey, as in “too big”, “too much”, “too messy” and not to mention “too much work.”

The table is set.

We just roasted the chicken by mixing lots of butter with rosemary, salt and pepper and then putting wads of it between the skin and the breasts. And the drippings of course didn’t go to waste. It turned into this rich and velvety gravy.

It turned out perfectly!

We roasted some baby potatoes and dressed it with extra virgin olive oil, rosemary, salt and lots of garlic.

Nice and shiny.

And after seeing this in Cook Country TV, we had to make these perfect popovers. It was fun watching them rise and turn into these golden brown pieces of bread.

It all goes well with a side dish of peas, pearl onions and ham cooked together with some butter salt and sugar.

Last but not the least is this. A dumpling.

Dumpling with a twist.

Apple Dumpling that is. Very easy to make and makes a wonderful individual dessert.

Great with a side of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of apple cider syrup.

This is just the perfect dessert to end a perfect meal.

I know I certainly have a lot to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
