Thanksgiving Thursday

March 18, 2010 § Leave a comment

It’s Thursday, which means I am hosting a dinner & movie. Tonight we will be watching The Ice Storm, a movie about a family falling apart but stuck together both for the holidays and as a result of wintry weather.

I love the idea of recreating Thanksgiving in March, so we will be having Thanksgiving sandwiches, mashed sweet potatoes and a cabbage salad.

I was able to buy a whole turkey breast (about 4 lbs) at the butcher for roasting. Hopefully it won’t take much longer then a chicken.

Sandwich recipe: assemble as you see fit

  • 6 Baguettes, Rolls, or Rye bread
  • Roasted turkey breast w/ herb marinade, sliced
  • Havarti cheese, sliced
  • Lettuce (or greens of choice)
  • Cranberry Mayo (via Sandra Lee)

Salad Recipe: (w/ some adaptations)

  • 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar*
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 medium unpeeled Braeburn or Fuji apples, quartered, cored, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 2 cups thinly sliced Napa cabbage
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • Spiced pecans (via epicurious)
