~ This is Day 258 ~
Thanksgiving Thursday has officially passed for 2020 but my Friendsgiving has not yet! This year, unfortunately, I couldn’t have it on Thursday because of scheduling issues. Not having it on Thanksgiving Thursday seems so weird to me and it’s happening tomorrow, the Sunday of Thanksgiving. I only just realized that I haven’t posted the menu yet. There was a sixth course but my seafood delivery was out of fresh sea urchin from Maine so I axed that dish.
Pickled Golden Beets • Apple Sorrel Gel
Micro Red Vein Sorrel
Duck Leg Confit
Celeriac • Hazelnuts
Montegrato Pedro Ximénez
Chanterelles • Shiitake • Market Carrots
Pearl Onions • Barley Risotto
Dry Aged Duck Breast
Pommes Dauphinoise • Caramelized Endive
Red Wine Jus
Kabocha • Contratto • Candied Pepitas
As much as I can’t wait for tomorrow to come, this “Thanksgiving” is dragging and I just want it over with already. Never doing this a Sunday again… keeping it to Thursday next year and all future years.
I know we’re all still in a pandemic and that a lot of people have been alone this holiday weekend but my friends coming are all the same friends that I’ve been seeing since the lockdown and we’ve all been careful, getting tested regularly, and also practicing safe social guidelines.
