We are continuing our tradition of the day before Thanksgiving dinner with a friend and her kids before they go back to Texas to visit their Dad. Three women (plus Will) a bunch of kids and a ton of food. And when I say a ton of food, I literally mean every flat surface is covered with food. Even the stove counts.
A turkey drenched in butter and white wine stuffed with onions, lemons and herbs. Stuffing, sweet potatoes, mac and cheese, collard greens, rolls, cranberry sauce and jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon. Plus desserts, pumpkin pie and an apple cake. Add some drinks and some appetizers and roll me out the door.
There’s a repeat at my house the next day too. Just for the 4 of us probably with the same amount of food if we’re being completely honest. LOL.
That’s how it’s supposed to be. And if someone has a favorite dish they need to ask for it and it will be made.
I’ll be sure to post pictures and recipes as we get closer. I just wanted to throw it out there what’s about to go down for this festive food filled holiday.
