‘Tis the season. I’ve been procrastinating writing a paper today and instead have been clawing through the ridiculous amounts of deliciousness that is all over the blogsphere right now. Some stuff that caught my eye that could make their way into my meal on Thursday:
French Lentils with Roasted Roots, Caramelized Onions and Thyme from the Huffington Post. While delicious, the lentil loaf was so time-consuming last year that I’m thinking of simplifying a bit in order to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with the fam.
Maple-Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Hazelnuts from the New York Times. Love me some brussels sprouts.
Vanilla Mashed Sweet Potatoes from 101 Cookbooks. I hate all things potato, but I’ve been thinking about doing a butternut squash mash (or maybe cauliflower?) instead. I would never think to put vanilla in a mash, but I am intrigued.
Spiked Pieshakes from Knuckle Salad. It’ll be no dice to forego pie completely, but come on… these look amazing. I’m obsessed with the idea and miiiight just make them as post-Thanksgiving snack. I’m on break, after all…
Let me know if you have any other ideas or links! I’d love to hear them.
Now I’m off to finish this freaking paper- the faster I do it, the faster I can pack up and get home for the week!
