This year I want to document the preparations of THE Thanksgiving dinner. It’s days of cooking all of my family’s favorite holiday food. And by the way, the menu HAS to stay the same every year. Nobody wants it to change, and while you can add dishes, you had better keep the usual ones! In fact, THE menu hasn’t changed in almost 30 years!! Menu is: roasted turkey, southern cornbread dressing (a recipe handed down from my great aunts), gravy, sweet potato casserole, real mashed potatoes, green beans, blackeyed peas, pistachio salad, cranberry sauce, and rolls. This year I’m adding a broccoli salad. We’ll see how it goes.
Here’s this year’s turkey going into the fridge to thaw. He’s a big one, almost 20 lbs. Hmm, going to be good eating!
