As Thanksgiving looms ahead...6 days away...I am in full-blown prep mode for my 21 dinner guests. I keep a log of past menus and guest lists. Some menu items are included every year just, well, just because. No one really likes jello salad, but we always have it - then we always scrape it off the plates into the garbage can after dinner.
Other items are regional - Kielbasi anyone? And some are specific to our family - Pineapple Souffle, perhaps? But the main goal is to sit down together and enjoy a gut busting meal.
I have a secret method of injecting brine into my turkey (using this recipe) rather than soaking my turkey the night before. Some folks set their tables the night before, others wake up at 5 am to put the turkey in the oven. What special dishes or secret techniques can you share with us about your Thanksgiving prep?
Trust me, your secret is safe with us...
It's Feedback Friday!
Share your special dishes and/or traditions to prep for this yummy holiday!
