Torment us with the last thing you ate (with or without photos) and/or a recipe you'd like to share with the class!

Yesterday I made a discount Thanksgiving dinner (chicken and gravy with a variety of potato-type things, and green beans), possibly the first time I've done a Holiday Cooking all by my adult self and only for two people. Today we got Applebees delivery, which is really just an excuse for me to eat too many pretzel breadsticks instead of cooking. I am also drimk (chocolate flavored red wine because I have the sophisticated tastes of a five-year-old).

(I really need to create a board where this thread would be most appropriate and move it 🤔)

For the past 3 years I have taken up the Thanksgiving torch after my grandma passed and her sisters decided to disband the big Thanksgiving. In prior years, hosted a smaller one with my parents/siblings, my elderly aunt and uncle and my single cousin who wouldn't get one otherwise. I love love love to cook for big groups so it broke my heart to learn that we would not be able to do that this year.

I ended up cooking everything anyway and just having my my mom and little sister over on the patio. I sent her off with leftover boxes for my older sister and her family and I prepared boxes to deliver to my aunt/uncle and cousin so they'd get some Thanksgiving.

I made green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing and turkey. I brined the turkey for 2 days in pickle juice and it turned out perfectly moist. Not to toot my own horn but I love to cook and I'm really proud of it! PXL_20201126_215815139.jpg

For dinner last night I made the only food in Xenosaga curry:

I will forever be indebted to Kat for bringing Golden Curry into my life, btw. <3

(Yes I'm 35 years old with a mortgage, yes I still eat most of my food at my desk and use my drawing tablet as a tray because I'm an absolute gremlin, we exist.)

Chicken soup is like the only soup I know how to make so I make it every week, more or less:

Behold my attempt at artful food photography that just looks ominous (those are sea salt and rosemary crackers, not alien monoliths btw).

Alien monolith sea salt and rosemary crackers, hell yeah!!

I've fallen off cooking these last few days but yesterday I made crock pot chili! I apparently can't eat chili without cornbread these days, though, so it was a bit of a bust.
