Febgiving satellite – Dekalb Illinois gets its first febgiving

March 5, 2009

Our good friend Paul in Northern Illinois hosted Febgiving this year, and it was a great success. I especially like febgiving decorations! Also, the main course featured prosciutto wrapped turkey breasts. We will have to get that recipe for next year!


Febgiving USA – an affair to remember

March 4, 2009

Febgiving USA was a great success – in large part due to all the friends that came into town for the holiday! Our good friend Adam made a “pretzel salad”, which is actually a fantastically delicious jello and raspberry salad with whipped cream and buttered pretzels. Oh, so tasty, and as soon as Adam gets the go ahead from his relatives, we will post the recipe here.

We also had mixed roasted vegetables including sunchokes, potatos, and beets.

Jim’s double decker apple/pecan pie was a hit:

Also, all my friends decided that potatoes for mashed potatos should be peeled, and since I only have one peeler, about an hour of funny ensued.
