I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is almost here! It is my favorite holiday I think; food and family ~ what's not to love?
A big part of the fun for me is in the planning ~
~to brine or not to brine?
~my (mothers) stuffing recipe or the misters (mothers)?
~cranberry sauce or relish, or both?
~ how many vegetable dishes, and which ones?
~will apple pie and pumpkin pie suffice, or should I add a third?
And did you ever think about all of the different ways to mash potatoes? Craziness! Which way is best? sticking with the hand masher, using a ricer, an immersion blender or a mixer perhaps? milk and butter? sour cream? heavy cream? so many choices!
I'm off to read some cookbooks and make some lists. Happy Monday, friends!
