I hope you all had a wondeful thanksgiving holiday, I know we did. As important as the holidays are for gathering family and friends, they are even more important in terms of cooking, no? I deep fried my bird this year, again, as I love anything fried, especially a 15 pound bird! We had 10 people at the house this year, so it facilitated the large bird, and some sides. My wife did garlic mashers, I did au gratin potatoes, with gruyere and chedder, and the gravy. All were well recieved. My mother in law chipped in with squash casserole and a variety of relishs, and we rounded the meal out with my mother’s homemade pumpkin pie. A feast to remember, for sure.
