Rye Breadsticks for Thanksgiving Dinner

rye breadsticks for Thanksgiving

For Thanksgiving, I tried my hand at another bread recipe — this time it was
Rye Breadsticks from Hodgson Mill website. They mixed up quick and easy, and although I didn’t take the time to get fancy with the toppings, they were tasty all the same.

~ new england clam chowder and french onion soup cooking
~ moong dal and rice, two kinds of stuffing, mashed potatoes
~ stuffing on the table
~ desserts included apple and squash pies, gingerbread, apple crisp, and ashwini’s goad bhaat
~ roast turkey, cranberry sauce, white sweet potato casserole
~ indosungod’s brinjal and brussels sprouts curry, turnips and stuffing
~ assorted munchies

Along with the usual fare, I added two Indian dishes I wanted to try — Indosungod’s Brinjal and Brussels Sprouts Curry (sans spinach), and Ashwini’s Goad Bhaat. My extended family was very interested to know about the jars of dal and spices I’ve accumulated since last Thanksgiving, and I was more than happy to demonstrate. Thank you ISG and Ashwini, for the lovely recipes; both were delicious!

    Linda – the dinner looks amazing. What a spread! I love your collection of antique dishes…

    Thank you Mandira — I really enjoy setting the table with the older dishes. They have that “traditional” feel that my newer things can’t match. Happy to see you enjoyed the holiday too ๐Ÿ™‚
