This year, after a brief pandemic induced hiatus, ThanksGavin returned to Philadelphia in 2021 — at my cousin Matt and his wife Andrea’s place.
Matt is in the back starting his kitchen prep.
For whatever reasons, possibly ennui, my photos are slightly more minimalistic than usual.
The savory spread.
Brussels with walnuts.
Doubling down on the red are the roasted beets.
My mom’s cranberry chutney with a bit of citrus and cayenne — probably my favorite.
Turkey #1. BBQed in the Big Green Egg. And Turkey #2 was Done in the webber over charcoal.
Stuffing without butter.
My official plate for 2021!
Whipped cream I “whipped up.”
And some super decadent butterscotch sauce I also whipped up — given that I’m not the master of anything that belongs with gelato.
A spice/fruit cake.
Here is my pancreas busting plate.
Overall, some of the best ThanksGavin food yet, even beating out the awesome 2017 and 2018! It usually is, as the standards keep going up and up! To see a list of all ThanksGavin meals over the here, click here.sharethis_button(); ?>
