link-o-rama (& twitter)

It's about 20 days until Thanksgiving--can you believe it? I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that it's almost the end of the year, let alone that I need to think about turkey and stuffing options. For those of you who are also in denial, let's ease into holiday planning by starting small: pre-dinner snacks.

Food & Wine has a helpful round-up of Thanksgiving hors d'Oeuvres options: porcini mushroom tartlets, chicken liver crostini, toasted pumpkin seeds [via F&W]

And so does Saveur, including prosciutto-wrapped parmesan and pecan dates, stuffed celery, and bagna cauda [via Saveur]

Six "instant appetizers" from Bon Appetit featuring store-bought foods that are special enough for a holiday like fancy artichokes and peppers, foie gras with black truffles, and interesting crackers. [via BA]

Food Network has 50 ways to top a piece of toast, if you're going in that direction [via Food Network]

And a bit of unrelated news: I finally decided to jump on the Twitter bandwagon. Follow me to find blog updates and random musings, as well as ask dinner party-related questions. Need help figuring out how many pigs in a blanket to serve? I'm all ears!

You just don't fret about a Thanksgiving appetizer. We can have my newly expired tin of foie gras !(or Freedom gras?) with my newly discovered favorite cornichons from Maille.

Nice! You bring the foie and pickles, I'll bring the crackers.

Lisa said...

PS: I didn't know Maille made cornichons...I always buy their mustard.

Judy said...

Yes. I stumbled on them in Carmine's.

Once we bought my dad blue corn chips and Dos Equis beer at Carmine's for his birthday, back when you couldn't get those things at every single grocery store or quik-e-mart.

50 Ways to Top a Piece of Toast actually sounds like the Food Network's programming philosophy in eight words. Everday Italian should be renamed Everyday Bruschetta.

Daniel: Ha! So true...
