Every Thanksgiving I make up a crazy hard menu of delicious food, and then race through the day trying to cook and eat it all.

Blackened salmon with salsa verde and black garlic butter. Also made a smoked salmon mac & cheese. And some Irish cheddar potatoes au gratin with bacon and mushrooms. Tonight may be (depending on motivation) Nashville hot chicken wings with cranberry BBQ sauce. Tomorrow looks like chopped beef sliders with blue cheese and peach chutney. Thinking about an Instagram sort of prawn salad with green goddess dressing
