This is my first Thanksgiving.
Well, not really. I am 24. But this is my first Thanksgiving MEAL preparation, which has left me feeling something like this zebra:
I have made dozens of pies before and I am a prolific stress-baker, so that part is not too bad. . . but a TURKEY??? Somebody hand me a Giraffe, I think I’m gonna climb up and hide until Thanksgiving passes.
THANKFULLY, I have found some helpful websites which should give me a little guidance in this fowl endeavor!
For example, this one seems to give a lot of details. . . but its also a little confusing. Whole Foods provided a nice little set of tips and tricks which could come in handy on Turkey day, too. The last article I read was called “Cooking Turkey for Chickens“, which seemed pretty a propos. These will be my consultants in the impending festivities.
We’ll see how this goes. It feels a little, you know, ME v. TURKEY. Like a final showdown, but I’m not sure who will actually be the victor! Do you know what I mean? Any advice is, of course, coveted.
As far as the sides go, I’m feeling a little more confident. . . and even inspired! I just “found” this adorable turkey veggie platter plan, which I hope to execute nicely.
Actually, I already have some nice recipes that fit my Thanksgiving needs, which I am still (eek) in the process of choosing from. But if there is some lack of inspiration, I’ll always have Martha.
Suffice it to say. Sides will include the following CONTENT:
We’ll see how it all turns out! Shoot me any suggestions you might have!
