I Cooked My Buns Off On a Sublimely Beautiful Sunday

A Good Day has to start the right way.

YUM!

Here is how I start my day with the perfect cup of coffee.

The day started out looking pretty good...

YUCK!

If you don't mind some white stuff on the ground...

So we had put off our Thanksgiving dinner until today as we were going to have some MIA. Basically that means it is back to the kitchen for the day for the OldGuy!

I was peeling to make some taters when I thought, somedays I feel all alone in a crowd...

So today it is some roast and some turkey. I went for only the small breast type coz I don't want turkey leftovers for days on end! So lets make a green bean side. No I am not talking about the green bean casserole that mama made. Oh no baby this here is some Chinese buffet style green beans and oh are they good.

Ok y'all let's get the show on the road! But first a commercial for my pals!


The Beautiful Sunday and Sublime Sunday tags are some of my faves! I want to thank @ace108 for running the beautiful Sunday tag every week and keeping such detailed stats and supporting the accounts. Also, a shout out to @c0ff33a for the sublime Sunday tag where your random Sunday posts are always welcome!


Now lets nearly julienne a sweet onion.

Grab your garlic. If you dont have a garlic press that would be a perfect gift to ask for because it is not expensive and no one want to spend too much cash on you anyways lol 🤣🤣🤣

Get them in a hot skillet. Here we are using the Lodge 12 inch cast iron. We want to almost caramelize the onions. We want them nice and soft.

Add in some green beans. Now we are only going to hit these with the heat fast but not long. We want them to be a little soft yet a little stiff, maybe 5/8 stiff would be about right.

Add a splash of:

Liberally add a good amount of soy sauce. This is where we want our saltiness from.

Got to have a little heat!

20211128_142848.jpg

Notice only a subtle color change. I would say just a few minutes more on the heat!

Lastly a capful or two of Michigan honey for the nice interplay between sweet and spicy.

Here is the final color. These are a hit year after year!

Here is some of my made from scratch stuffing just like mom's with white bread, celery and onions. Mmmm so good!

20211128_162336.jpg

Ah here are my home made totally from scratch mashers. I use the mixer and have them taters shooting all over the kitchen LOL

Mini turkey. Last year it was like 20 pounds. Too many leftovers. I like leftovers for a day but after that it becomes a chore somewhat.

Now the beef I rub with sea salt and course black pepper.

The kiddos like it way more rare than this. If it doesnt moo, its too done in their opinion. I like a nice shade of pink.

I also did my swimming in butter biscuits! They are so worth giving a try. Always a hit!!!

Oh it was a proper feast.... Now for dessert?!? 🤣🤣🤣

I see your 100 year old cast iron has made an appearance. Not looking a day over 21 from the looks of it.

You're eating well and your end result looks like medium-rare to me. Rare, nope send it back. The aristocrats will take it medium-rare haha

I keep hearing about this turducken. A turkey stuffed with a duck. I'm curious but someone will need to cook that for me. Duck is so greasy from my experiences and often doesn't sit well with my stomach.

The real question is this. How many weeks of leftovers do you have? I see a day but these tend to last forever and might need some other interesting recipes for the rest.

I'm hungry now, thanks a lot haha

Yep I tried duck once before and was left with the same thoughts as you. The older I get the less I tolerate grease (and cold weather for that matter lol).

I actually like leftover for the first day. Much beyond that it becomes a chore TBH.

Better a smaller turkey than leftovers unless you have regular plans for the leftovers.
I learned something about whipped cream recently in TV program. Apparently, people abuse them.
This is the first thing that come out when I search for: whipped cream fainted

I find that Demi Moore search engine result interesting, I must have missed that one. This along with other inhalants are quite common unfortunately.
