i can cook!

November 27, 2009

happy black friday!

anyone buy anything good?

i haven’t had a lot of time to sit in one place and blog but i wanted to drop in and share the dishes i made for thanksgiving.

we always have a mix of korean and american food at our holiday dinners. even if we insist on cooking all the american food- there’s always someone who needs rice and kimchi to go with their stuffing! we had the most random mix of food this year- our oven is broken, so we cooked korean bbq, fish, shrimp and even a rotisserie chicken on the grill outside (gotta love california!) and my sis and i were in charge of the american sides.

my sister did most of the cooking. she is the cook of the family and always goes all out…..but i didn’t do so bad either. i’ll share her creations later, but for now…i wanted to show off what i made 🙂

i cooked 3 dishes- stuffing, roasted butternut squash puree, and roasted brussels sprouts.

the stuffing was a little bland because i followed a sausage stuffing recipe and then omitted the pork sausage…it was still good though….i used a mix of french baguette, whole grain loaf, and corn bread. it looks a little burnt but i like the crispy bits and my sister likes the mushy stuff under.

the brussels sprouts were a hit…korean people love anything cabbage-y, so that wasn’t a surprise. i tossed brussels and mushrooms in grapeseed oil and balsamic before roasting and then topped with toasted walnuts.

i don’t have a close up of the roasted butternut squash puree but it’s one of my favorite thanksgiving foods. i didn’t have enough squash so i added some roasted carrots in the mix and it turned out great…the puree is seasoned/pureed with buttah, honey, orange zest and a pinch of salt.

hopefully, i’ll have time to update again later today. see ya!

    Ohhh those brussel sprouts look amazing! I haven’t had them in forever. I love that you do a mix of Korean and American food too!

    Wow your thanksgiving dishes all look so delicious!
    I scored major swag at the mall yesterday. I did some marathon shopping for twelve hours so I was pooped – but I got some major goodies at bath and body works 🙂
