Recipe: Skin-ny Scallion Mashed Potatoes | Food and Drink
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is in just three days. I know, I know, I say this every year, but it just keeps sneaking up on me! Of course, the weather here in my neck of the woods is partially to blame: except for a handful of storms over the past week, this fall has been extremely mild. It’s hard to feel like Turkey Day is right around the corner when you’re forever in shorts and flip flops.
I also blame the election. Whether you were obsessing over every article and meme that showed up on your news feed, or just obsessed with it being over, it consumed us all, and definitely threw off my internal holiday clock. I’m not used to being so incensed so close to a day filled with my favorite thing in the world: a table full of delicious food made by me mum.
But it’s almost here, folks. And if you haven’t already done so, that means it’s time to seriously contemplate what to put on that table for your family and guests on Thursday. I’ve been contemplating such deliciousness 24/7 since the election ended, making up for lost time that should have been spent dreaming of my mom’s candied orange yams, and how the sweet syrup accidentally ends up mixed in with my turkey & stuffing, and how flippin’ delicious that combination can be…
Focus, Kimberly, FOCUS.
Longtime readers know by now that I love, love, LOVE Thanksgiving sides. Don’t get me wrong – I look forward to that turkey just as much as the next person (in fact, I don’t think I have turkey any other time of year. I should fix that), but what good is a bird without its trusty sidekicks? Stuffing, potatoes, salads, green bean casseroles, yams… the list goes on and on and on, and to me, every single one of these sides is ESSENTIAL.
