We absolutely look forward to Thanksgiving every year! Bring on the turkey and, best of all, the LEFTOVERS! It is such a great holiday, as it’s all about eating, being with the ones you love, and what we are truly thankful for.
I am starting to plan out our menu and this is what I have so far:
First, we must always, always, always, start the day with some homemade Bloody Marys. This is something that my Mom has done since as long as I can remember and she truly does make the best Bloody Marys. She has tried to show me how, but there is no measuring involved here it’s just pour some of this, some of that, add this, add that. Really, Mom?
Brined turkey (my Star’s recipe, which is absolutely amazing, so moist!), it did take some convincing to get him to reveal his process, but I have my ways….. 🙂
Vegetable side dish, which I am still trying to figure out. If anyone has a great dish they would like to share, please post it under comments. My sister-in-law, Shelly, has a great baked asparagus dish, but I never got the exact ingredients/measurements and I pretty much just winged it and the results were meh! Hint, hint….Shelly.
Salad (not sure of this either, again if you would like to share one, please comment)
Dessert – thinking of something with apples
But the best part is the leftovers! We created a dish a few years ago, which we named “Turkey Stromboli.” Details will come later, but here is a picture of me making it.
I cannot wait to eat! Bring on Thanksgiving!
