So last night, after watching the 10 year old grandson play basketball and winning, we took Kelsey to Melt, a restaurant that specializes in variations of grilled cheese sandwiches. She ordered the Turkey Bomb which is Thanksgiving dinner between two slices of thick toasted bread. Surprisingly, she could not finish it.
Did I mention that granddaughter Kelsey is in her 2nd year of culinary school (johnson and Wales) and wants to cook for us. Oh darn. I hate that. NOT! So we spent the day yesterday and today shopping for food and planning menus. We took Kelsey to West Side Market to shop for produce and spices and bread and more.
Tonight John's son and wife arrived and Kelsey made us a really delicious dinner. We had Dry Rubbed London Broil with a mushroom demi-glace, AuGratin Potatoes with a Parmesean crust and steamed asparagus with pecans. Everyone deemed it delicious and took a second helping. Great food, great conversation. A perfect meal.
Tomorrow my oldest son arrives with his three other children. John's daughter and her partner also arrive. Full house during Thanksgiving is wonderful.
I forgot to take a photo of Kelsey's meal tonight, but I did take a photo of our refrigerator which is usually half empty.
