The day before Thanksgiving I made the quick drive to my father's home to help him cook our turkey dinner. It's been a long awhile since my dad and I have been in the same kitchen at the same time cooking together and I have to say, it was pretty fun! While I've never made a huge Thanksgiving meal alone before, I feel like next year I will be prepared to make all the fixings after my day long cooking lesson with my dad this past Wednesday!
...I know gravy can be the most challenging part of a thanksgiving meal, stay tuned because later this week I've got a great recipe/method!
The turkey was defenseless against my family's rumbling tummies, see evidence here:
Thanksgiving has got to be one of my favorite holidays. If you have been reading my blog, you know that I have a love affair with food and a holiday centered around the idea of eating is just my cup of tea (or even my cup of hard cider, find my recipe here). But I have to say, this time of year also reminds me to appreciate all of the wonderful things I have going for me in life. A heart felt thank you to my family, friends, boyfriend, and readers (that means you!) for continually supporting me thru out the entire year! Your affections never go unnoticed and I thank you!
