Review of Thanksgiving dinner...not your normal feast.
As common knowledge to our nation, staples included within the Thanksgiving feast contain the epically roasted turkey, mashed potatoes or variations on sweet potatoes, thick gravy, stuffing, green bean casserole, and the celebrated pumpkin pie. However, this conception isn't the system employed by my Grandparent's every November. Our entire family on my Mom's side looks forward to consuming rather...odd choices for better words on the matter upon sitting down to eat at 10:00 at night. Here's to the decided menu for Thanksgiving 2011;a cultured and adventurous palette was indeed utilized.
"The Bits have a Bit(e)": Labeled cheesy hot bits, these appetizers are a staple at the Gaubtaz's Thanksgiving dinner. A combination of crumbly and melt in your mouth goodness, the spice of cayenne pepper hits every part of the palette while the pecans add an additional piece of nutty texture to every swallow. Followed with a small flute of Martenelli's Apple Cider, my appetite was initiated in preparation for the full meal.
