Turkey Meatloaf

1 tablespoon olive oil
½ medium yellow onion, diced (about ¾ cup)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 medium red pepper, finely diced (about 1 cup)
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
2 pounds ground dark turkey
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
¾ cup dry whole wheat bread crumbs
1 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray lightly with oil.
Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute the onions, garlic, and bay leaf until the onions are tender, about 3 minutes. Add the red pepper and cook until the pepper is tender, about 5 minutes more. Stir in the parsley and thyme and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove pan from the heat and let the onion mixture cool. Discard the bay leaf.
In a large bowl, combine the turkey, eggs, bread crumbs, ½ cup of the ketchup, the Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and the cooled vegetables. Use your hands to mix everything together.
Transfer the mixture to the center of the baking sheet and form into a loaf. Coat the meat loaf with the remaining ½ cup of ketchup.
Bake for 1 to 1 ½ hours (depending on the shape of your loaf), until the meat loaf is firm. Let set for about 5 minutes before slicing.
Crisp Green Beans with Tomatoes
1 ½ pounds French green beans, trimmed
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 shallot, minced
½ cup grape tomatoes
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
Salt and pepper
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the beans and cook 2 minutes. Drain the beans.
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the shallots and sauté until tender, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook 2 minutes. Add the beans, lemon zest, and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the beans are tender, about 3 or 4 minutes.
Mashed Cauliflower

1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into pieces
1 tablespoon light cream cheese
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook cauliflower until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well.
In a bowl, combine cauliflower pieces with cream cheese and Parmesan. Use a potato masher to mash the cauliflower. Season with salt and pepper.
Hard Apple Cider
1 quart apple cider
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cinnamon stick
2 whole star anise
1 piece orange peel (about 1 by 4 inches)
½ in piece fresh ginger
¾ cup calvados
Thinly sliced apples, for garnish
In a saucepan, combine the cider, sugar, cinnamon, star anise, orange peel, and ginger. Bring to a low boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook 10 minutes. Strain and stir in Calvados. Serve hot, or chill and serve over crushed ice. Garnish with apple slices.
