To you and yours! Hope everyone had a wonderful day with family and friends.
I cook a feast two times out of the year. Thanksgiving and Christmas. Includes breakfast and dinner.
Dutch Babies with bacon or sausage (or both)
Ham or Turkey, stuffing/dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, roles, dessert
Today I started cooking around 9an (woke up really late) and finished right around 5pm. I had a good time but my feet are killing me!
DL helped with the eggs for the Dutch babies, he cracked all 6 and only got a small bit of shell.
Dinner this year was a bunch of firsts. Brining the turkey, sausage dressing, new mashed potato recipe.
The turkey was in brine for about 24 hrs and let me tell you – it is fabulous! I will be brining birds from here on. The sausage dressing is good but just a tad to spicy for me. I will use the recipe again but maybe with plain country sausage. The mashed potatoes had mozzarella & parmesan cheese with lots of bacon topped with bread crumbs and more parmesan and baked for 25 min. mmm!
Dinner was almost anti-climatic as cooking dinner was an all day event while the sit down dinner was over in about 15 min! Still worth every hr, min, & second I spent in the kitchen today. Everyone loved dinner and hopefully I wont have to cook again until Sun when Im bringing potatoes for the inlaws feast.
Well, Im off to rest and massage my feet and then off to a good night’s rest. No 4am shopping for me – checked and there just isnt anything we have to have from the Black Friday sales.
