I said I’d make my Thanksgiving meal all out of ingredients that would have been familiar to (or cultivated by) my Native American ancestors and cousins, but prepared in a modern way.
This is what the menu turned out to be:
* Wild rice with assorted wild mushrooms
* Pecan encrusted rainbow trout
* Baked squash with maple syrup
* Sweet corn pudding
* Cornbread stuffing with sage, roasted chestnuts, fresh cranberries and wild mushrooms
I’m SO looking forward to the leftovers!
