Thanksgiving is often a time of overeating, mainly due to the meal served family-style. However, if you keep it to a few appetizers as passed or part of a stationary buffet for a cocktail hour, with a break before a sit-down meal, you can avoid excessively stuffing everyone, and have a more elegant meal. I have created a menu, and have linked the dishes to some online recipes for your convenience (since I rarely write down recipes). I’m also sharing the CoolVines wine pairing suggestions, and coffee tip I received from a courteous expert!
Try local produce – Princeton Farmer’s Market. Local poultry – Griggstown. Local grass-fed beef – Simply Grazin’. Local cheeses – Cherry Grove Farm. Imported cheeses – Bon Appetit & Olsson’s Fine Foods. Wines – CoolVines.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ONE AND ALL!
