Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and here’s hoping you all have much to be thankful for. We certainly do: family, friends, health, our home and garden, books, cats, quilting, being retired, and so much more.
Wednesday evening, our turkey will go into the brining solution to soak for 12 hours, then back into the ‘fridge until late tomorrow (Thursday) morning when it will be stuffed with the aromatics (apples, cinnamon, onions, sage and rosemary which will be discarded when it’s done) and eventually put into the oven.
With it, we’ll have stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry, green beans (steamed, not casserole), and pumpkin pie.
While all that’s going on, there’s NFL football on all day, starting at 9:30 am (!). I’ll watch the Bills game, and some of the others, but also help in the kitchen and get some reading done.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
