adios (and a few menu ideas)

Hi all,

Pardon my absence for a little while. Dan and I are heading down to Florida to spend some time with our family. On the agenda: catching up with the parents, reading the paper by the pool, eating oysters on my birthday, a day trip to South Beach, playing with the dogs, and consuming obscene amounts of my Nanny's cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving. (Recipe to come.)

Speaking of which, looking for dishes to supplement that turkey or ham? Here's a few ideas from the archives:

Curried deviled eggs
Sausage rolls
Spiced cashews
Sweet and spicy peanuts
Sweet potato pancakes

Sparkling ginger cocktail
Big apple cocktail
Fall sangria

Braised red cabbage with apples and caraway seeds
Orzo with cinnamon brown butter and parsley
Roasted beets with horseradish and fried capers
Roasted acorn squash with maple syrup and nutmeg
Twice-baked potatoes

Pear crisp with vanilla brown butter
Pumpkin custard

Happy Thanksgiving!

I didn't know cashews could taste so good until these came out of the oven, warm and brown. A real treat.
