I made a typical Thanksgiving meal: roast turkey and gravy, scalloped potatoes, savory sweet potato mash, creamed corn, bread stuffing/dressing, and cranberry relish, all from scratch, as well as a pumpkin pie, with candied pecans to sprinkle over and a buttermilk-maple cream to pour over.

This is the first time I've made a pumpkin pie from a fresh pumpkin I roasted myself. I have to admit, it made a big difference.

^^Same thing happened to us - we always used to use canned pumpkin in our pie filling, until one year I grew pie pumpkins in the garden. I gave one to my dad (he’s our designated Thanksgiving pie-maker), and it made such a huge difference in the pie that he now always uses fresh pumpkin.

I’ve got beef stew in the slow cooker for dinner tonight - new recipe I’ve never tried before, hopefully it turns out good!

I couldn't really get all the seafood ingredients for it. Normally I like mussels and scallops in it too (not shrimp, I have an aversion to shrimp). It was a land animal paella this time.

Trying to be "good" for a couple of weeks before the blowout confectionery-fest that is xmas. So making fridge soup for lunch, ie any bit of vegetables that have been languishing in the fridge for too long. Today, one onion, two cauliflower stems, one broccoli stem, a leek, and a carrot. A couple of stock cubes, a bit of coriander, cook for 20 minutes then puree the whole thing. Always different, but always yummy!

Seafood paella is the bomb.

I made a really nice tater tot hot dish thing. First I made a vegetarian chili, with onions, peppers, garlic, jalapeños, tomatoes, veg broth, two kinds of beans, and spices. There was also some flour in there to thicken it a little. Then I covered it in shredded cheese, then I added a layer of tater tots. Tossed the whole thing in the oven to finish it.

It came out delicious! Husband also really liked it, despite the lack of meat. Good comfort food for a snowy night like tonight.

I think the only change I would make next time is I would add shredded cheese on top of individual servings, instead of layering it into the casserole.

^^^ "Tater tot hot dish" - are you sure you're not from Minnesota? :)

That looks and sounds delicious! It's cold and snow here as well.

I made pizzas with salami and chopped olives.
