It's empowering carving the turkey! I've carved lots of roast chicken, but youtube helped me with the big bird. Tip: Invest in kitchen shears.
Martha Stewart's recipe for Lemon-Thyme Potato Gratin is the most irresistible potato dish. It disappeared once my family got a taste. This comes from a girl who eats mashed potatoes with everything. Get the recipe here.
Christian Louboutin's red soles make me feel festive!
Basting the most delicious bird ever. I did a chipotle rub with cilantro, thyme, flat leaf parsley, & chipotle peppers. Cooked at 350 for 3 hours. Perfect.
Did I sneak a slice while carving? Possibly.
It's an intense undertaking.
Dressing, green beans and salad, check. @Robertd3 is looking at me like, "hurry up."
Dad smells something. He's been known to sneak a bite too.
Aren't the turkey and the potato gratin gorgeous?
Every cook's favorite part (aside from someone offering to do dishes) is serving everyone.
When my family chows down without talking to each other, it's a sure sign they like the food.
Gotta love it.
Happy holidays all.
