Thanksgiving came and went so fast, as did this berry twist pie that Nolan put some serious time into.
The past several years Nolan has taken the cooking reins and done all the cooking. Not only that but he makes these hilarious menus.
2015 Thanksgiving Menu
Holiday Brie en Croute
How French of me!
Sugar Coated Pecans
Bet you can’t eat just one
Mini Brie Tarts
Because you can never have too much Brie
I guess there had to be 1 thing pumpkin flavored on the menu
Deep Fried Turkey
Going back to a tried and true method – this year with a Honey Beer injection
Sour Cream Garlic Mashed Potatoes
I searched ‘Garlic Mashed Potatoes Sour Cream’ and BOOM! Deliciousness
Jalapeno Cranberry Chutney
The cook works for Ocean Spray, ‘nuff said
Em said no but she doesn’t make the menu
A favorite from the last 2 years, plus it’s super easy. Win-Win!
Green Bean Casserole
This has become a staple…are we getting boring?
Mom’s famous fruit cocktail salad – this year with REAL bananas
Mom’s labor intensive crock pot stuffing
See Ocean Spray comment above
Apple-Berry Twist Pie
If this looks anything like the picture, I expect a ribbon
*Menu subject to change should the chef deem anything more difficult than the recipe makes it sound
Instead of Black Friday shopping my mom and Scott had a “second Thanksgiving” at their house the following day. Another meaty meal.
Last weekend I went to NYC with my seester. We didn’t go to see a Broadway show, or visit any museums (although we tried) or attend any special event. We went to eat, and eat we did.
Park Avenue Winter
Random find that changes the look of the restaurant every season (spring, summer, autumn and winter). Watch out for the chairs, they jump out of no where and try to trip you.
**Located on 26th Street, just east of Park Avenue South
Very cozy spot
We stopped at Mercer Kitchen last time in NYC (I ordered a Manhattan in Manhattan because I thought it was funny while knowing deep down it was just trying too hard.) This time I ordered a mint cucumber martini and oysters. #stilltrying
By the time we made it to Mamo we were full, but I still couldn’t say no to the fresh bread dipped in balsamic vinegar.
Fig & Olive
The poached egg with salmon and french omelet gave us the energy to walk 13+ miles that day.
1 Hotel bar: Jams
The Nomad bar: The Library
Dark, swanky bar with incredible cocktails.
