This time of year is when X really shines. The kitchen is my friend.
For Thanksgiving, the Wednesday before is just as important as the big day itself. If all is to be successful, proper prepping is the key.
X makes his own cornbread for his stuffing today.
X will make his pumpkin pie from scratch today.
X will make his apple pie from scratch today.
X will make the wife’s fave Jello salad; raspberry Jello, a bit of crunch celery, pecan halves, crushed pineapple, and whole berry cranberry sauce.
X will also prepare the brine for the 21 lb turkey later this evening, giving the bird a good eight hours in the brine.
The green bean casserole will be made on T-day, as will the stuffing, brown and serve rolls, and X has
not decided to make smashed potatoes. It was a toss up between that or scalloped. X figures the smashed go better with X’s turkey cream gravy.
