My brothers are coming home over Thanksgiving, so just for fun I made up a menu for them of all my favorite things. It was actually a really fun little project – one of those things you do where you lose track of time and all of the sudden it’s 8:30 and time to go bed! Here it is, for your perusal.

I tried another new recipe tonight: Lamb Sliders with Ginger Cilantro Aioli. This recipe had a lot of steps. You have to make the sliders, slice the sweet potatoes whilst trying not to slice off your fingertips with the mandoline, season them, bake them, and then make homemade mayo. AND then! chop up jalapeno, grate ginger, chop cilantro and then add it all to the mayo.
Then when everything is done, you have to stack it all up and eat it up yum. Yes, it’s a lot of work, but it was a pretty delicious meal. My only complaint is I now have 3/4th cup of aioli that I have to use up within 3 days. It IS delicious stuff. We’re just going to have to put aioli on everything for the next 3 days – eggs, salmon, oatmeal, ham, everything.
If you want some aioli, stop on over!
