Can you believe that Thanksgiving is a mere two-weeks away? Well, if you want to be technical about it, it’s really only 13 days away. I love Thanksgiving. It’s kind of a bummer that Thanksgiving tends to get pushed to the background now that Christmas starts loading up the shelves at or before Halloween. I still consider Thanksgiving weekend to be the weekend that kicks off the whole Holiday season.
I love cooking up a huge feast (and devouring said feast), even though hours of preparation and cooking can be demolished in 13 minutes. I read that statistic somewhere. The main course, of course, will be the Champagne Turkey I make each year, along with all the usual side dishes and desserts. I’ll spend the day before Thanksgiving doing a lot of the ‘make ahead’ parts (including making pies) so there’s little less grunt work left for the actual day.
Princess Nagger’s favorite Thanksgiving pie is Pumpkin Pie – so much so, she’s asked that I make her one for her birthday next week, in lieu of an actual birthday cake. She’ll still get a birthday cake, but that will be for her party which will be the Saturday after. Which I still need to plan. I guess I better get busy.
Which brings me to this weeks question(s):
Do you make or eat a big Thanksgiving feast? If so, what’s your favorite dish of said feast?
Have a great weekend!
