Do you ever feel like the leftovers are the best part about Thanksgiving? I do! I find myself most years making the most delicious dishes after everyone has left and I have time to get creative.
Two years ago I made this Confit Turkey Risotto and it was one of the most insane flavor bombs I’ve tasted. I highly recommend trying some new things with turkey, especially this year as your holiday might be a bit smaller. I know several people who are going to make this menu ON Thanksgiving because, why not?
I am all about tradition and I’m equally for breaking it! Both can give you a sense of life. Tradition allows you to feel secure and at home and breaking it allows you to feel alive and inspired. This year we’re doing a bit of both in our house and I feel that suits the nature of this year, a little comfort and a little life!
Oh, and I threw in my cocktail I am drinking this year. Note: sub vanilla extract for hazelnut extract if you prefer, both are great and will not disappoint.
