A Word on Food™ Radio Show

A Word On Food: Pumpkins

We had a very nice, very small gathering for Thanksgiving 2020. I hope you did as well. Virus testing was done by all in the preceding days. We greeted with masks and face turned hugs. We had our doors open for much of the day. Luckily it was good weather for that. We cooked all day with everyone doing their respective parts. Eight year old Audrey loves helping and we surely let her. She was the one who said “no” to turkey this year. She wanted quail! So that is what I fixed. Cornbread Stuffing went into the boned out little birds. I had a lot going on in that stuffing. I made a Miso and Soy Glaze to give them a nice hue with a touch of umami packed salty-sweetness. We had baked ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, Brussels sprouts salad, a vegan dressing especially prepared for and by Lourdes … but we all enjoyed it. And for dessert our son, Justin made a knock out Pumpkin and Pecan Pie with an all butter crust. Audrey declared it to be, “Yummy!”.
