Happy first day of October, everyone!
Can you believe Thanksgiving is almost here? This may surprise you, but l must confess that my husband, Michael, and I have a recent Thanksgiving tradition: we NEVER roast turkey. Perhaps this is because we do a roasted chicken almost once a week in fall, or perhaps we cooked too many turkeys as restaurant chefs, but we actually take advantage of the fact that seafood is often on sale (because of low demand) and make a seafood feast.
The best one we had was about 3 years ago. Michael got a full case (15-20 pounds) of giant King Crab legs -- they were so big they flowed over the tray! It was unseasonably warm that day, so we ate our crab feast outside, dipping the crab in a Grand Marnier butter sauce with family and friends. Not a single person said that they wished we had served turkey!
Is the roasted turkey the rule for your family? Do you have to try and recreate your Mom's stuffing each year? Or perhaps it's dessert that needs to be something particular.
