Thanksgiving Dinner Menu “2010”

November 25, 2010

Welcome to the bounty of  Thanksgiving.  In most areas you are celebrating root vegetables and many squashes.  Now in Florida we are at the beginning of celebrating citrus, and you will see some wonderful recipes in the months to come with lemons, limes, oranges, tangerines and grapefruit.  But to be fair, we who live in Florida but grew up in the North Eastern part of the United States do miss our farm fresh root vegetables and the beautiful squashes of every color.  We occasionally find some rare ones here like the spectacular “hubbard”.  I personally have not but recently a friend of mine did and she loved it, hubbard squash was a favorite in our family.  Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and if you smell dirt in your kitchen while cooking, you know it will be wonderful.
