The Haul: Pre-Thanksgiving Gluttony Edition

It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving! That means I need to plan an app to take to my brother’s place. The past couple of years, I’ve made a delicious dip, but alas, it contains pecans and I think I’ve developed an allergy to them.

I remembered another dip I made several years ago for a friend’s Halloween party. It has leeks and pumpkin puree and goat cheese in it — it was quite addictive and I think it will be a hit at Thanksgiving. In addition to the ingredients already listed, I bought a baguette and breadsticks to serve with the dip. I also picked up:

  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • 7-grain bread
  • Country French bread
  • Nutella (this, plus the heels of the French bread = lunch)
  • Honey yogurt
  • Milk
  • Plain yogurt (another ingredient in the dip)

Obviously, the pumpkin above has yet to be pureed! That’s what I’ll be up to tomorrow — what doesn’t get used in the recipe will be frozen to make soup later. Last weekend, I made cheese sauce to serve with steamed broccoli and I had a ton of the sauce leftover. Therefore, I bought more broccoli for this week.
