Thanksgiving will be the two of us (the way I prefer quite honestly) so the table will not be overstuffed: we'll have the bird, stuffing, mashed potatoes, steamedgreen beans, a hearts of palm salad and a chocolate pot de creme for dessert.
OK that's a lot of stuff.
But here are some of the things I must say I miss from my youth (I grew up in the 60s) (and please note I would never do these unless we were doing a retro thing with lots of people):
Green Bean Casserole
Cranberry Jello Salad
Did you ever have a non traditional Thanksgiving? One time in Boston I went to my friend Liz's house and we boiled lobsters. Once I made paella. I think we've also made chinese food. Sometimes though it is just easier to do the classics!
What are your favorite Retro or Non traditional Thanksgivings?
