This reminds me of an old joke.

Q: Why do the British drink warm beer?
A: Lucas refrigerators.

in honour of our brothers and sisters to the south, we did turkey as well.
Which south is that? We had leg of lamb, Spanakopita (Greek spinach pie), roasted potatoes and Indian rice pudding.

Wow, I could eat that (except for the lamb)! Love love love spanakopita. T-day is often difficult for vegetarians.

Our main course was an odd international mix- ravioli stuffed with duxelles of morel and requeson cheese, served in a tomato, white wine, and brown butter sauce. That's Italian, Mexican, and French, all in one. And of course we served it with a Rioja, just to add another country to the list.

For football day tomorrow (though it couldn't be better than the Ravens-49ers on T-day), we're trying some Nepalese steamed dumplings with paneer in a tomato chile sauce (last of this year's tomatoes from our garden and two varieties of green chile that we grew).

For Thanksgiving one of the vegetables was a cold asparagus salad, offshoot from a NYTimes recipe -- sliced the asparagus on the bias and parboiled just to the point of tenderness, combined with shaved fennel, onion and red pepper -- served with a french dressing. The original recipe called for radishes and scallions which we forgot to get! I think we had 7 vegetable dishes, a nicely done turkey by my daughter in law, and too many bottles of Pinot Noir.

We used to have much more variety, but now that I no longer do the cooking, not so much. My wife hates to cook so we take what is quick and easy that I can talk her into.

I didn't realize you were a vegetarian. I will have to start posting non meat recipes.

That sounds delicious. With so few Indian dishes to choose from, I am surprised I haven't had it yet.

No pics but tonight we had Agedashi style tofu in a tempura batter with black sesame seeds and Chayote stir fried. Must have been thinking of you SY.
