There has been much cooking and knitting this Thanksgiving weekend. I was in charge of the big feast this year. I haven't cooked a turkey since the disasterous Thanksgiving of 1999, but I've logged almost 13 years of cooking experience since then. I think I nailed it.
- Turkey with Pancetta, Garlic and Rosemary
- Roasted Root Veggies
- Peas with Leeks
- Mashed Potatoes with Butter
- Cornbread Stuffing with Sausage and Sage
- Regular Stuffing with Sausage and Mushrooms
The turkey was super moist and cooked at 350 only took 3 hours to roast. I'm making that turkey again for sure! I'm going to have to fight with my mom over who is going to roast the turkey.
I was super smart and prepared the stuffings, cut the veggies, and made the turkey rub the day before. Plus, I made the pumpkin pie the day before too, so I was remarkably relaxed. I felt on top of things for the whole day.
It was a great Thanksgiving spent with family and friends who we consider family. Looking back it makes me feel like such a grown up. Even if sometimes I still feel like I'm 15.
How was your Thanksgiving?
