Miss Chef is trying a new approach she read about: roast for an hour breast-side down, then flip. A few more hours to go.
Afternoon…Lucille is the name the farmer gave our turkey (we ask him every year when we pick it up, and he makes up a name on the spot.) She looks beautiful, doesn’t she?
A little weight-loss routine…
…and the main course is ready.
Sides included a super-yummy cornbread stuffing with chestnuts and local sausage. That’s the green bean casserole to the left.
Our hostess made a pretty medley of roasted root vegetables.
Of course, there was a lot more…I didn’t get the two styles of mashed potatoes, or the rolls from our local bakery with herbed butter, or the sautéed shredded brussels sprouts with cranberries. Uh oh, I think I’m getting hungry again!
Good thing there was a plethora of pies to top us all off.
I hope you all had cozy, laughter-filled Thanksgivings with your loved ones. Enjoy those late-night turkey and cranberry sammidges, y’all!
