The Other Turkey Day

Well, since PeaceBang is live blogging for Thanksgiving, I thought I might as well. Since Hubby and I aren’t at Peacebanghaus, we’re not travelling at all, at home, and keeping it simple.

As I mentioned before, we have a Quorn imitation turkey loaf-like roast. Pictures below the fold, and I’ll add more as I can. That canned cranberries, powdered potatoes, a green salad, store bought pie (who knew Entenmann’s made sweet potato?) and Alton Brown’s sweet corn bread pudding (a savory) is as excited as I can manage this year.

Perhaps if we’re keen, I’ll try and talk hubby into going to the Sackler Gallery for a rather off-beat Turkey Day treat:

Later. Didn’t make it out of the house, but did add more photos.

November 27. Katherine asks about the Quorn loaf. It was shockingly turkey like. I overroasted it in a vain attempt to make it roasted brown, and it came out a bit drier than I imagine it would have had I stuck closer to the instructions. Accordingly, it was like overroasted breast meat, not like a cellulose sponge or even like gummy turkey lunch meat. I’d recommend it.

  1. I cooked a regular turkey for the family and a quorn for my daughter. She said it was “ok” but she is not a fan of turkey in the first place. I think I overroasted the one I made too. It just looked like a very pale sausage.

    The leftover quorn went into a vegetarian chile for her, which she liked better.
