Thanksgiving Update!

Thanks to Nonna Stella, we’re good to go.  We’ve been good to go for hours.  Nonna had these grand Italian-American get-together’s, and if I learned my way around the kitchen, it’s thanks to her.  Grazie mille, nonna, grazie mille!

This year’s main contribution?  It is all her.  We’re talking two different stuffings, a la Nonna.

1.  Arborio rice, walnuts, dried porcini, celery, onions, ground chicken sausages, and miso broth.

2.  Polenta, chestnuts, celery, onions, garlic, and miso broth.

The miso substitutes, of course, for chicken broth, and the umami it adds?  Priceless.

The birds are salted, peppered, buttered, and have some rosemary and sage, and are basted now and then with miso and mushroom broth.

Sides: Pigeon peas, fava beans, leeks.

And now we wait.
