So what is on the menu? Well, Dick will be smoking the turkey and ham. He discovered quite by coincidence that putting the ham above the turkey and having all those juices drip on the bird makes for the bestest turkey you have ever tasted! Trust me on this one.
We expect 14 here all total, and this is what is arriving:
dressing & gravy
green bean casserole
cauliflower with cheese topping
Notice I said ARRIVING. We could quit right there with all that food, but there are still a couple of things missing.
I will of course have cranberry sauce. It isn't Thanksgiving without that, but I am making two of my own T'giving staples: Marinated Roma Tomatoes and Glazed Carrots and Parsnips. And I plan to make some cranberry bread this afternoon after I put on a big pot of chili for tonight's dinner.
And that turkey carcass will go in the crock pot on Friday to make a big pot of soup. My mouth is watering already. Come join us!
Life is (VERY) good! That's the news from sunny Mayberry.
