If the cranberry sauce doesn't look like cranberry, it isn't.

 

 

Plate looks delicious! And cranberry looks like pomegranate...

Because Thanksgiving dinner was moved up sooner than I wanted, I was still finishing up at the last minute. I was still making gravy and slicing bread when people started arriving.  That is why I did not have time to take any pictures.  I brought ham back to the Thanksgiving table after many years absence. My uncle never ate any kind of fowl so we always had some ham along with the turkey. I started serving Heritage ham along with turkey because it is so good. People have started looking forward to it as much as the turkey.  This is a "Leftover Ham and Egg Salad" that is Charlie's favorite. I added some ham slices to my sandwich.  The following is a description of one of the farms that raises pigs for Heritage Foods.

Healthy Heritage Hogs

Unlike the overcrowded inhumane conditions of industrially farmed pigs, which makes up
97% of the dry, tasteless pork sold today, White Oak Pastures’ pigs forage on lush pastures
 and pecan groves, while also enjoying farm fresh eggs, nuts and grains. These
accommodations coupled with the mixed heritage breed of Tamworth, Berkshire, and
Gloucester Old Spot result in the most astonishingly healthy, full-flavored ham you will ever enjoy.
 
 
 
Ham n Egg Salad
 
Ingredients
2 c. Left over baked ham, diced very small
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 c. mayonnaise
1/2 c. chopped celery
1/4 c. chopped sweet onion
1/4 c chopped dried apricots Have used dried apples and or golden raisins.
Salt and Pepper to taste

@Norm Matthews Not a ham fan but the type you mention I think I'd like. But what got me was the dried apricots. Genius twist.

Did I mention the cupboard was bare?   Veg crisper close to empty?   Meat bin cleaned out?

Smoked sausage, Dijon, curry-braised celery, caramelized apples

Viaduct ? & Duck Soup?

 

Not talking about The Marx Brothers, The well known old-time vaudevillians.

 

Why a duck? Because no one likes turkey for Thanksgiving!

 

Got a  Three-Buck-Duck. Duck at $3.00 a lb is expensive compared to $0.39 a lb for turkey.  I prepared the duck Peking style because that’s what everyone wanted.

 

Peking duck is traditionally served on a steamed bun, like a sandwich. Just to be different, I used Italian bread for the duck meat duckwiches with Hoisin sauce, and the anothers with Bazlama bread with shattering crispy duck skin. Both sandwiches come with the very last indoor ripened garden tomatoes.

 

What happened to the duck bones? Duck soup with potato dumplings.

 

Speaking of three-buck-duck, a bottle of Champagne Cuvee Dom Perignon 1980 was served, way above Three-Buck-Chuck.

 

It was a Happy Thanksgiving meal.

Felt hungry about 8 pm on Thanksgiving day, so pizza had to be made.  Sausage, mushroom and jalapeño .

In preparation for our hunter friend coming on Wednesday, I made a huge batch of egg rolls yesterday.  Had those, noodles and sticky wings last night.

Did you use your air fryer to cook the egg rolls?

Not a curry. Kabocha, parsnips and jack beans. Some kabocha was cooked first to make a thick sauce, then the cream was added later. Dark stuff is actually fresh basil mixed with olive oil. I ate the first half with Spätzle.

Second half I ate with my own kelp pici (hand-rolled pasta).

And what became of the second half of the pici.
