Last week we visited our friends D&H&G for our annual Hanukkah dinner together. There was brisket and roast chicken, latkes, kuggel, chopped liver and homemade donuts. It was a wonderful celebration.
This week we are back home with a smaller than usual group. It is cold and the forecast is a bit dreary. So something a bit hearty and comforting was on my mind as I constructed this menu.
Braised Dark Meat Turkey
Buttered Egg Noodles
Chickpeas with tomatoes and peppers
There were 8 for dinner this week (5 adults & 3 kids).
I cooked the braised turkey in the oven rather than on the cooktop. I used a temp of 300°F for 2.5 hours and moved the turkey about every hour or so to ensure even cooking. I found 6 drumsticks at the grocery store so that’s what I used. The only difficulty is removing all the small pin bones before serving. Even after sending 15 minutes playing “hunt the pin bone” our guests still found a couple.
