Our Thanksgiving was hilarious! No one in our family is a gourmet chef, but we decided to have a cooking competition anyway. Peter and I watch Top Chef every week, so I thought it would be fun to video tape the whole day and make our very own episode. Everyone had to create their own Thanksgiving dish and have it ready by 5:30pm. We had a lot of fun making the bios and the having everyone in the kitchen at once. Mimi didn't know what to do with herself, because she's always been the one in the kitchen making a majority of the dishes. We called her the "saboteur" since she couldn't help herself and kept fiddling with everyone's food. The end result was a really funny memory! In retrospect, we should have judged the food at the end instead of one at a time, it made eating a little less pleasurable and way more stressful. But hey, it was a competition!
Here's a run down of what everyone made:
Peter - Turkey Abby - Pumpkin Apple Soup Poppie - Grean Bean Casserole Nonnie - Marshmellow Salad Dodie - Bacon Cheddar Crustini Buggy - Mashed Potatoes Mimi - Corn Pudding Grandma & Grandpa - Chocolate Tier
You'll have to watch to see who won!
So, here's the Johnson's Top Chef Thanksgiving (Yes, it's long.):
