The main event in my kitchen this week was Thanksgiving x2. Yes, one meal on Thanksgiving day, and another big meal on Sunday when our daughter and her family could come.
In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu
As you well know, lots of prep work does into Thanksgiving dinner. I like to do as much as possible ahead of time so I can enjoy the day, too. Chopping the onions and celery for the stuffing is an easy thing to do ahead. Use those celery leaves, too! So much flavor in them!
I cooked the sweet potatoes in the pressure cooker. They came out perfect for mashing.
I made enough celery, onions, and sweet potatoes for both meals at once. Such a time saver!
I prepped the turkey by stuffing butter under the skin before I put it in the oven. This is the first time I tried this. And it worked! It was the juiciest turkey breast I’ve ever had. I’ll definitely be doing it every time I cook a turkey now!
My grandson and granddaughter “helped” with the pies by rolling out extra crust. They had a blast. And my flour was covered in flour. That’s ok, I didn’t mind!
Apple, chocolate, and pumpkin pies! Yum!
Thanksgiving number 1 buffet…..
And Thanksgiving dinner Number 2!
The stars of both dinners……the turkey and the ham!
I hope your Thanksgiving was as full of good food, family, and memories as mine was!
