Let the cooking begin…..

Actually, it started last night. LOL!  I have a wonderful turkey recipe that I found online last year.  It turned out beautifully, so I thought I would give the gravy recipe that goes with it a shot this year.  I have never made gravy in my life.  I know, I know.  I can hear the shocked gasps now.  Anyway, I wanted to share the link to the recipe with you.

Lynne Rossetto Kasper has some great recipes.

As I was saying, about the gravy………it is a 2 day process!!  I did the gravy base last night.  Smells and tastes amazing though.  Can’t wait to try and finish that process up.  Should be interesting if nothing else.

Next up on the new recipe list is a green bean casserole from Alton Brown.  Fresh green beans, fresh mushrooms, half-and-half, fresh onions…….mmmmmmmmm!!

I will let you know how that turns out.

I have a chocolate pie idea that I am bouncing around as well.  That one will be all me, and I will post that if it turns out like I want it to.

Wish me luck and pictures will be forthcoming!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Brrrr…….

So, I live in the Piedmont area of Georgia, northeast of Atlanta.  What most of the country calls cold weather, would probably be beyond my general scope. LOL! However, it has gotten down right chilly here and they are calling for rain with a possible wintery mix. Work on my garden is on hold, probably until after Thanksgiving.  (I will be spending Wednesday evening and Thursday cooking.)

Stay warm and dry and watch for how the turkey turns out on Thursday. I’m excited!
