Our Thanksgiving Menu
Turkey: Of course! I usually brine mine overnight. It makes the juiciest, tastiest turkey around!
Sage Stuffing: My Mom makes the best stuffing and every year I try to duplicate it.
Gravy: I finally mastered the art of making a good gravy!
Cranberry-Apricot Sauce: A great recipe that I started making almost 10 years ago. Here's the recipe.
Easy Corn Casserole: Another great recipe! I love this!
Streuseled Sweet Potato Casserole: The best sweet potatoes in the world!
Green Beans Almondine
My SIL and her family and my MIL will be having dinner with us at our home and then afterwards we'll be heading over to my parents' home for dessert.
I really miss the days when I used to have all of my brothers and my sister and my parents together on Thanksgiving. I know that once you start to have your own families that things change but this time of year makes me feel really melancholy for those days when we'd all hang out at my parents' house looking at old photo albums and remembering things we used to do.
