Hey! Happy Wednesday. Happy Thanksgiving Eve. Wait, that isn’t a thing, is it? Well, it totally should be. And we should probably get the day off work for it. Whose with me? Because we all know that food prep starts way before Thursday anyway. . . btw – isn’t it crazy how much cooking and planning goes into one! meal. Thank goodness there are always tons of leftovers.
In honor of Thanksgiving Eve, I thought I would share the typical dishes that make up my family’s Thanksgiving dinner.
A whole turkey that comes all ready to go in it’s own bag. Pretty amazing. All you have to do is poke a couple of holes in the bag and put it in the oven. I’ve always been super nervous about making my own turkey and screwing it up, but I am pretty sure I could handle putting it in the oven. . .
bahahahaha – they even call the bag “The fool proof bag.” Yup, perfect for me.
2. Mashed Potatoes and gravy. My Mom rocks these out. But doesn’t this recipe for crockpot garlic mashed potatoes look amazing?
3. Stuffing. Does your family call it stuffing or dressing? I think in mine we call it both, it depends on which recipe my Mom makes. . . My Grandma Christine’s recipe is dressing, but the other recipe Mom makes (Mark Consuelos stuffing recipe) is stuffing. Craziness. This year, we are trying something new. I am going to make this recipe.
Double score for a crockpot recipe on Thanksgiving. Fingers crossed that I don’t ruin Thanksgiving.
4. Crescent rolls.
5. Canned cranberries. That no one really eats. . .
My Dad makes the best pies. His apple is amazing. Seriously, I wish I could send you a piece. .. but then there would be less for me, so I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it.
What’s on your menu for tomorrow??
