Thanksgiving Dinner Report
I'm roasting two turkey breasts. Evan made a whole cut-up turkey in his sous vide machine, cooking the legs in duck fat. I'm also roasting green beans with garlic and shallots, and roasting carrots with ras el hanout. Pretty ordinary stuffing on the side. I made cranberry orange sauce a day or so ago. Perry baked pumpkin muffins. Our friends are baking/bringing pies, garlic mashed potatoes, and sweet potatoes. Plus 3-4 kinds of seasonal beers, apple cider, etc.

Rice Porridge With Shrimp
I put a half-serving of Carolina golden rice into my rice cooker with the correct amount of water and a half teaspoon of salt, and cooked it on the porridge setting. When it was finished, I stirred in a dash of fish sauce and a half-teaspoon of chicken consommé powder. It was a little less soupy than I'd expected.
In a sauté pan, I sautéed a minced garlic clove in oil for 30 seconds, then added five diced medium raw shrimp (deveined and shelled), and cooked them through.
I deglazed the pan with a little water, then scraped it all into the porridge and mixed carefully. Garnish was a sprinkle of dried basil.
On the side, I made a cup of English Breakfast Tea.
