After reading all of your wonderful comments and listening to your suggestions, I have decided to go for a very non-traditional surf and turf menu for our Thanksgiving mini-feast, yay! I am so excited to get cooking today!
While making this menu, I had a few necessary requirements. It had to be something that’s fresh, light, and not heavy since I know we’ll be consuming all that heavy starchy goodness come turkey day.
Check out what I have planned for our pre-Thanksgiving mini-feast à la surf and turf!
Grilled Flank Steak with Tomatoes, Red Onions, and Balsamic (recipe here):
Garlic Shrimp with Basil, Tomatoes, and Pepper Flakes with Orzo (recipe here):
And for dessert, my apple crumble! Speaking of that…I can’t seem to remember my apple crumble recipe!! I’ve made it so many times too…so sad. Don’t you just hate when that happens? Hopefully, that light bulb in my head turns on soon!
So what do you guys think?! What I love about this is that it’s simple, easy, and totally stress-free. And of course, someone (wink wink) will be in charge of steak cooking duties and chopping that pesky onion! :)
Oooh I better get started on my grocery list! Ahhh, I have never gone grocery shopping the day prior to Thanksgiving before! You think it’ll be chaos? Hehe. Just out of curiosity, when did you start grocery shopping?
For you twosomes dining sans family this Thanksgiving, what’s on your menu? Ps, I think of us as a tiny family of two. So don’t fret, celebrate!!! :)
Happy pre-Thanksgiving and good luck braving those grocery aisles!
