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!
