Meatloaf of 50/50 ground beef and ground spicy sausage with scallions, carrots, fresh herbs, ketchup, and Worcestershire

Hashweh, a Middle Eastern dish that literally translates to "stuffing." Rice, ground lamb, ghee, olive oil, warming spices of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon, topped with toasted pine nuts and slivered almonds.

Green bean casserole, buffed up with mushrooms, sour cream, fresh herbs, and lemon zest.

Mashed potatoes cooked in whole milk--no water. Then mashed with butter and fresh dill (keep the reserved starchy milk as an awesome base for any homemade creamy soup)

Pumpkin pie with homemade lard crust, sprinkled with grated ginger, brown sugar, sea salt, and cayenne

Turkey breast deboned and sous vided, whipped potatoes with gravy, green beans with bacon, stuffing, crescent rolls, cranberry sauce, white zin. Husband is diabetic so most desserts are out but I make a low carb pumpkin pie with chopped pecan praline crust and whipped cream that ain't half bad.

Do you mind sharing some recipes? WOW. You got a great knack for presentation + photography too.

The pie and meatloaf looks so good.

Probably roast a turkey breast and drumsticks. (Just two of us this year) dressing, mashed taters and gravy, roasted sweet potatoes (for her, I dislike the things)green bean casserole, a couple of pies...and cranberry nut bread.
We said fuck it...too much work for just us. We declined several invites from friends and decided not to cook here and invite friends over this year. Instead, we went to the local Eagles Aerie. They provided turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, dressing, and some other things...then members all brought some kind of side, salad, or dessert. It was OK.

Thanks! The pictures and recipes are all my GF. I'm more of the 'you point, I punch' type. I'm pretty good at following instructions though so I can competently follow someone else's recipe.

Meatloaf:

Tips on mashed taters, we also add mayo at the end.

Never had hashweh but this shit was incredible.

Better than canned shit.

Pie crust because I'm a millennial and I've never made my own.

The topping is the key. Completely transforms the flavor.
