Thanksgiving 2010 Recap

by Melissa on November 28, 2010

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! This was my first year cooking a whole turkey, and although I have prepared turkey breasts in the past, they do not compare to roasting the entire bird! I am happy to report that the turkey was a success, as was most everything else on the menu.

There were definitely some disasters as well though. For one, I forgot to take the bread cubes for stuffing out of the oven when I pre-heated it to 500 degrees for the turkey. We didn’t notice until they were nearly black, oops! Luckily, I had enough extra bread to make another batch. I also confirmed my hatred of pie crust this year. I love to bake almost anything, but seem to have the worst luck with pie crust! Thankfully my pies still tasted good, and it is amazing what some well-placed whipped cream will do for presentation!

I have bad luck with pie crust too. I wish my mom was well enough to be able to show me how she did it. She used to bake 5 – 6 pies a week, and they were always perfect.
