My Pre-Thanksgiving Tradition

Every fall, when the weather turns colder I begin the countdown to Thanksgiving. When I look at the calendar and see that my beloved turkey dinner is still TWO FULL MONTHS away, I decide I must have turkey now. So every year (no joke!) we have at least two and sometimes three, Pre-Thanksgiving Turkey Dinners. Our first one for this year is scheduled for this Sunday.

Now these Pre-Thanksgiving Turkey Dinners are the real deal. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls.... no short cuts here. Thank goodness for those little bone-in turkeys! They are smaller and don't take nearly as long to cook.

Happy Pre-Thanksgiving everyone!

I just remembered I need to drop something off to you and Sunday sounds like a good day to do it, I wouldn't want to interrupt that delicious sounding pre-Thanksgiving dinner. I'm really good at side dishes, just so you know, or even doing THE dishes after the meal is over, just so you know. Just in case.......
