as I promised

I am going to divide the prep time  in 2 days: what you can do on D-1 day  and what you can do on D day. Of course you can do everything on D day but do not forget that on that day you have to finish to cook, dress yourself and be with your family/friends. So organize yourself to get some free time and you have to start cooking pn D-1 day.

What you can cook on D-1 day :

For 8 peoples

The cranberries relish :
12oz cranberries
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1-2 cloves
1 pinch salt
3/4 cup eau
1/2 tsp chinese spices
1 small star anise
1 apple

Pour all the ingredients in a sauce pan, except the apple, and boil under medium heat uncover during 6'.
During that time, peel and dice the apple. Add it to the cranberries relish and cook for 4' more.

Advices :
- The relish is really acid and bitter. So feel free to add more sugar as desire but let me tell you "the sauce works very well like that when eaten with the all meal".
- For the spices, you can change the spices as you like .

Oops!!!! People are crazy!

He wants a second spouse : the first one kill him, cut him and COOK him (sorry that is in French)

Wherever you are living, whoever you are, you always need to respect the person who is cooking for you at home, otherwise...

Happy Thanksgiving

Today, I am going to cook for Thanksgiving. Tradition, tradition!
So we will get a Turkey breast (we are just two at home so a whole turkey would be too much), a cranberries relish, some stuffing and some sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
Let me go cook, take some pictures and I am coming back to you as soon as possible.
