I did not even miss the turkey


Friday, November 25, 2011

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day and I started it with a Turkey Run 5k, a charity run for the Shriner's Hospital for Children. Then for our dinner, I prepared a nontraditional meal. I decided to do a Fall Harvest Theme rather than the Turkey Dinner with all the trimmings.

Here is what we had:
Butternut Squash soup
Salad with mixed greens
Roasted Vegetables (squash, sweet potato, potato, Brussel sprouts, carrots, onion)
Black Bean and Carrot Tamale
Apple Pie Lara Bar for dessert

It was my first attempt at making tamals and boy, were they yummy; much better than those we get a the local Mexican restaurant.

    Sounds wonderful! We had a stuffed roast chicken since my son hates turkey. It turned out well. But I think tamales sound fantastic. And soup...mmm.

    Your meal sounds delish! I'd love the recipe for the black bean and carrot tamale if you are willing to share. I've never made tamales before but LOVE mexican food.
