Turkey - a free range one from a local farm. I pick it up on Wednesday
Gravy - I cannot make gravy to save my life. My mom always swoops in right before serving the meal and whips it up
Stuffing - my mom and I have this awesome recipe that I'll never reveal the secret for mostly because it's kind of embarrassing
Mashed potatoes - yum
Sweet potato casserole - it's like starting dessert early
Green beans - just green beans - no fried onions or mushroom soup to drown them out
Cranberry sauce - the jellied kind in the can, and I'm not apologizing for it. My six year old will fill his plate with it
Rolls - dinner rolls and cheese stuffed rolls from a local bakery
Pumpkin pie - because it's the law
brownies and assorted cookies
I'm also serving a Shiraz and a Sauvignon Blanc. Not what I read I should be serving with turkey, but I'd rather drink what I like, not what I'm supposed to.
I think my favorite part of it all is the perfect trio of a little turkey, a little stuffing and a little cranberry sauce all at once on my fork.
What's your favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal?
