I absolutely cannot pick. Can't do it.
I love it all. Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. It's all about the food baby. We have the same menu on Christmas and it's just not the same.

I love the turkey, the stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, pecan pie...all of it! I especially love the leftovers

I love the turkey, but only if I cook it. I use the brown bag method, coating the whole inside of a brown paperbag with butter and herbs. I stuff the turkey with fresh aromatics like celery, fennel, onions, carrots, garlic and fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary, sage etc.) Then I rub the turkey down under the skin with the butter and herb mixture. I put the turkey in the bag or bags depending on how big it is. Bake as usual and it comes out sooooo good and moist LOL.

ETA this year we are having Thanksgiving up at the wedding, so I have no idea how the dinner is going to be LOL. I hope it is good.......

LOL honestly a brown bag turkey is almost impossible to mess up, it bastes itself and as long as you watch the time it almost always comes out perfect. If anyone needs turkey help, I am more than willing to lend a helping hand (well typing hand anyway LMAO) I don't do stuffing in the bird because it is so easy for it to not be heated enough and make people sick. Especailly if there is anyone in your family with a low immune system. So what I do for stuffing is boil the gizzards and neck for about a hour, with a bouquet garni(sp) of fresh herbs then use that broth to make the stuffing along with all the meat from the neck. It comes out so good that way and you just throw it in a casserole and bake it with the turkey for that last 45min or so.

TURKEY!!! I love turkey! The stuffing is good too, but nothig beats turkey. We deep fry ours, in a turkey cooker with peanut oil. It comes out so moist! As long as you don't overcook, or the skin comes out flaky and dry. I can't wait till Thursday. Since I am preggy this year and not dieting, I am gonna stuff my face, LOL. (I sure miss the little smilie that stuffs his face, lol.)

Oh, candied sweet potatoes!! They are SUPER easy to make. Here is the recipe Ash.



From Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book:


Candied Sweet Potatoes
Prep: 40 Mins. Bake: 30 to 40 mins @ 375 degrees



3 medium sweet potatoes or yams
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon margarine or butter
1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped nuts or mini marshmallows


1. Cook fresh sweet potatoes, covered, in enough boiling water to cover, for 25 to 35 minutes or until tender. Drain; cool slightly. Peel potatoes; cut into 1/2 inch thick slices.


2. In a one quart casserole dish layer half of the potatoes, half of the brown sugar, and half of the butter. Repeat layers. Bake, uncovered, in a 375 degree oven for 30 to 35 mins or till potatoes are glazed, spooning liquid over potatoes once or twice. If desired, sprinkle with chopped nuts or marshmallows and bake for an additional five minutes. Makes four servings.


I have never tried it with nuts, the marshmallows are too good!

If you want, take an extra 3 tablespoons brown sugar and tablespoon of margarine, microwave the butter till melted, mix in the brown sugar and then microwave a little longer till melted, then just sit aside in a cup so you can spoon it over the potatoes while baking. I usually do it this way.
