Thanksgiving at the Beach

  • November 30, 2014

Every other year my family spends Thanksgiving at the beach in North Carolina. We go there with another family with whom we are very close and we spend the week playing disc golf in the mornings, drinking beer and playing corn hole in the afternoons and kicking off dinner every night with a bunch of oysters and icy cold gin martinis. And then the real feasting begins. One day its a 20 hour smoked pork shoulder or a thanksgiving turkey from the smoker, shrimp and sausages and fajitas from the kitchen, and of course leftovers for days for lunch. It gets harder and harder to leave every time we go!

      Thanks Alice! I’m glad you like the blog and that you’re going to give one of the recipes a shot. I think farro will be a great substitution! If you haven’t tried spelt yet, though, I hope you’ll give it a shot. It’s got great flavor and texture!
