I mentioned my thanksgiving meal in my last post, which was delicious but you may have notice I didn't elaborate on the Goose recipe. That is because it is my We Should Cocoa entry this month.
Chele from Chocolate Teapot is hosting this month's We Should Cocoa and she challenged us to make something with cocoa and apples! I didn't have a lot of time this month. I had originally planned to make apple and chocolate Mille -feuille but I'll have to make that another time, instead I decided to double up my thanksgiving meal with the challenge. I got this roast Goose recipe from allrecipes.com but I added two teaspoons of cocoa to the spice rub. The Goose is stuffed with fried apples and covered in a spice rub with cocoa. You could taste the cocoa on the skin (yum!) and the goose meat had an overall spicy taste.
Here is all the food on the plate, covered in gravy!
Just as a side note, this is the weird fused mushroom I used for the green bean casserole.
Was too busy eating the Goose so forgot to take a pic before it was carved but...erm...here is one after.
Do you like my new wintery placemats? They are in red felt with cut out stars. I also sprinkled on some felt snowflakes, cute huh?
These are from the new plate set my mum got me for the "festive season". I don't have too much room for them but I love festive stuff!
So be thankful today, in fact all weekend, and tell at least two people you love that you love them because this holiday reminds us to be thankful for what we are blessed with x
