Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
I love pumpkin pie, and in my book, Thanksgiving is a better holiday than xmas. I loved the gathering of family and friends as I was growing up, and it still is the holiday I am most interested in celebrating as fully as possible. Not to do with pilgrims, everything to do with my loved-ones getting together. Even if it isn't exactly on the date of the official US holiday.
That said, my ex is from Puerto Rico, and squash/pumpkin gets used in savory dishes, like as an addition to bean dishes. No spice seasonings, it vanishes into the dish, simply providing nutrition and thickening.
This evening I had a 6oz piece of Haddock that I've had in the freezer. I bought a couple of packages of frozen fish planks at my favorite discount/gourmet grocery, and gave one to a friend. I heard from him that they're really good, so I dug it out and thawed some. And the simple butter in the skillet, flour, salt and pepper on the fish was just perfect. Lemon squeezed over it, with an extra grind of pepper, and it's a rich white fish.
