Calling all fellow bloggers/readers of my blog:
How do you like to prepare your Thanksgiving turkey? Or what was the favorite turkey recipe you had?
Any suggestions (overall) for Thanksgiving meal preparation?
How do you serve other (more needful) people on Thanksgiving? Any traditions?
And lastly, any suggestions to really emphasize the gratitude-focus of the day?
This is our first Thanksgiving at home, our first actually preparing the meal ourselves--actually we're having some of our dearest friends over, and they'll be bringing several dishes, too--but technically, it's our first. (We're not counting the early Thanksgiving we had when Phill was home on leave in October of '05.)
I know there are several questions here. If you want to email me your answers, if you feel like it and have time, have at it! And if you only feel like answering one (or none), that's okay, too! I'm just putting this out there, seeing what I'll get out of it.
So far, we're doing: the turkey, cranberry sauce, rolls, pumpkin & apple pie, gravy, and our friends are doing green bean casserole and stuffing, and mashed potatoes. I have good recipes for the pies and rolls. But any other recipes (for the turkey, sauce, or gravy) are welcome.
