Side Dish Superstars!

This is a huge cooking week for many in the States...with Thanksgiving lurking so near! Now, we pretty much all know we're going to cook a turkey...maybe the same way we always have...maybe a new recipe or brine or rub or cooking method. But definitely turkey. Of course, you don't have to be celebrating anything this week to contemplate what's going to be on your plate this week. Start with your meat (or main dish...sorry vegetarians)...
I love to eat turkey love to eat tur-ur-key (thank you Adam Sandler)...BUT there's just something about planning around that turkey...looking beyond that main dish...finding that perfect...
Oh yeah...the side dish!! Or side dishes, if you will. Those are what truly make the meal. And endless possibilities! I just know that you can find a fabulous Nigella Lawson recipe to fit into this weeks theme:Scour the websites...pour through your books...and come up with a fabulous side dish to share here at I Heart Cooking Clubs this week! And if you missed this months Potluck, be sure to head over and check out the goodies that everybody shared.

Link your I Heart Cooking Clubs post of the week's permalink with Mr. Linky, below, so we can all see your fabulous cooking club creation! Please leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone. Not sure what a permalink is? Check out our Welcome post.

Love this post. I'm the one that doesn't own any Nigella cookbooks, so will scour the web and hopefully have time to participate.

Just put up my broccoli and pasta with mustard-caper sauce. I planned on serving buttered noodles with the broccoli as the side dish, but decided to mix it all together. I had Deb in mind when I made the mustard-caper sauce, knowing her love of capers, and decided to throw in the pasta so I could participate in her PPN this week! My link is spelled wrong, but I didn't know how to fix it.

Happy Thanksgiving all!!

Great idea to combine with the pasta! Don't worry about minor spelling mistakes. If it was something big we could log into mr. linky and edit but it isn't very noticable.
Cheers!

OK, my Lentils Braised in Red Wine is posted. Really delicious and a perfect side for a variety of main dishes.

Kim--lol--thanks for thinking of me and my great caper love! ;-)
