Thanksgiving 2009 leftovers

I've made a practice of posting our Thanksgiving menu each yea r but somehow I didn't quite manage to get this up in advance. So regard this post as a memento similar to the crumpled aluminum foil covering the turkey carcass in the fridge - a reminder of something delicious that perhaps you've lost most interest in. Our Thanksgiving had the added pleasure of Dutch guests, fitting as this is the 400th anniversary of the Dutch coming to New York, where our meal took place.
