Thanksgiving Weekend 2012

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.


The Menu:

  • 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?

Thanksgiving was grand. And I made turkey pot pies with leftover turkey....which means I can occasionally cook.

Blogging about knitting since 2004.


What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
