Here’s the menu for my family for the week of November 22nd. As far as desserts go, we are traveling this week, so I will be washing the cookie jar in that last load of dishes and putting the cake plate away. We’ll come back next week with 4 weeks of Christmas Baking – so don’t miss that!
When my mom makes turkey gravy, she always makes giblet gravy (recipe to follow). It took me many years to learn how to make any other kind of gravy. Now that I make this recipe, it would be hard for me to say whether I prefer giblet gravy over this traditional gravy or not! It is really flavorful and the perfect compliment to the rest of your Thanksgiving feast.Pin It
This past week, in public school, my 8th grade daughter learned how to properly put a condom on a partner and was given instructions on how to choose a good brand. Did I mention that this was done in a co-ed class environment?
Welcome to the Thanksgiving Extravaganza! I’m so happy that you joined us!
I cooked a big Thanksgiving Dinner for my family, and am excited to share it with you! Everything has its own separate and more detailed post, so I’ve linked each one here.Pin It
Scott calls these “salads” and will eat them raw if I let him. I love them – boiled, steamed, roasted – it doesn’t matter to me. I’ve tried different seasonings, spices, and methods, and it all comes back to just simple salt and pepper and a roasting in olive oil – that makes the best way to serve them for me.Pin It
When I first read this recipe, I didn’t understand what the instructions meant. Once I started performing the actions, they made perfect sense. I’m glad I take pictures, because I’d probably explain the process to you in circles! These rolls were light and wonderful – a perfect compliment to our Thanksgiving feast – or any feast for that matter!Pin It
Roasting a turkey may seem like a daunting task, but it’s really not that difficult. It’s just a matter of making sure it’s cooked all the way more than anything, and making sure you don’t over-cook it. Under-cooked turkey is a health hazard, and over-cooked turkey can be dry.Pin It
