cooking like crazy

Spending log - $1.35 coffee + $8 lunch

Doing my list of of make-aheads because the turkey will take up all the room in the oven:

Cranberry sauce
Cooked potatoes (heat them through then mash)
Chopped celery and onion for the stuffing/dressing
Making the dessert

DH and I discussed what we would do with the turkey that we haven't done before - we have done the black turkey, the grilled turkey, the brined turkey, the heirloom turkey (yum!, but you had to have planned ahead and got your order in in March) and I've put my foot deep fried turkey. So who knows? Maybe just rub it down with salt, then stick butter and sage underneath the skin and roast. You know - the normal way.

Then we had the debate between stuffing and dressing. Stuff the turkey, or not? Thinking not, because of speed and the stuffing will get into the gravy. An unstuffed 20 lb turkey will cook faster, and the turkey will make more gravy.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Baselle! I make my mashed potatoes ahead of time and stick them in the crockpot on low to keep them warm...
