Part one of a Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup – Potatoes and Green Beans. In which, I skip the fancy recipe I had planned for family favorites and classics I know will go a long way.
Let me give you a run down of some things going on. See that cram packed table up there? That is proof that I’m a wee bit off the deep edge with no shot of coming back.
That is my all from scratch ‘Thanksgiving’ dinner a week before Thanksgiving just because I wanted to ‘blog about some food’. That is crazy.
Next week, my family will gather around one of those feasts made to feed a small country, leave with dogie bags to feed us for a week longer, and be so full and content with company that we will already want to start that post-holiday work out. But here I am, kicking things off a whole week early.
Why? Because smoked turkey is the most amazing thing you can give yourself this holiday season. Because I wanted to review a cookbook, and because I really just like to cook.
Friends and family got to gawk awkwardly as I climbed atop chairs and snapped photos before allowing them to dig into the spread (better planning on the crazy train noted for the future. I don’t like it when people see me in full-on blogger mode).
Now that you know what kind of Hell I inflicted upon my loved ones – let’s get on to the recipes!
