Turkey Day is Right Around the Corner!

Thursday, November 15, 2012

OMG! Is Thanksgiving really only a week away?! November has just flown by and before you know it Christmas will be here followed shortly by New Years. Things always seem to move so quickly toward the end of the year. It really is crazy how anyone manages to stay sane.

On Thanksgiving I will try my hand at cooking a turkey again. Last year's attempt wasn't perfect. It was actually surprising that it was edible. I had thought to myself -- well, a turkey is just a giant chicken and I've made plenty of those. How hard could it be?-- HA! If I only knew... it is much, much harder. My turkey was well seasoned with a crisp skin, a very dry interior and the gravy I attempted to make from the drippings downright unedible.

This year I'll have help from a friend and my other half. We are determined to get the turkey done right. The fixings come out great on the other hand. I make smashed potatoes, potato skins, green bean casserole and stuffing. I've got the sides down pat. Oh, and let's not forget the biscuits.

What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish? Do you have a traditional dish that you serve? Do you serve something other than Turkey?

Happy Thanksgiving!
