I'm getting up WAY too early tomorrow to make the rolls, finish the jello pretzel dessert, prepare cheese balls and veggie trays and then try and go for a RUN! it's supposed to be the COLDEST Thanksgiving in over a decade! but- what is Thanksgiving without a self made turkey trot??! I've got to burn those calories so I can eat them a few hours later!
We've got a few new recipes we're trying this year. I've got a banana cream pie. Kent made his own brine (he took over turkey brining and prepping after last year's brining disaster. I bathed the entire kitchen in several gallons of raw meat ridden brine juice). He's also doing the cranberry sauce from scratch. I prefer the canned stuff- with ridge lines still. So I'm bringing the ocean spray along.
