A Great Feast



Thanksgiving has come and gone once more. During the month of November, my sisters and I enjoy cooking up smaller festive meals in preparation for the big day. This way, not only do we get to enjoy Thanksgiving all month long, but we also have a chance to experiment with new recipes that we may or may not want to incorporate into our actual holiday meal.

This year, we tried something a little different and fun. The previous month, we vacationed down in Orlando and visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. We absolutely loved the restaurant there called The Three Broomsticks. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, and the food was delicious. The photos below show the dining room (top), a dinner of roast chicken (below left) and the butterbeer cart (below right) at the park.




We decided we wanted to recreate a typical meal served there. We called it our Great Feast. The menu included chicken, ribs, roasted potatoes and corn on the cob. This was our result:

We even whipped up our own version of butterbeer (cream soda + vanilla ice cream) and served it in the souvenir steins we brought home with us. For dessert, we poured homemade peanut butter sauce and strawberries over vanilla ice cream (not pictured). Mmmmm...
