J. smoked this turkey for our 2009 holiday. It kept the oven clear, which makes the rest of the meal prep easy.
I’m counting down to Thanksgiving. Although we won’t be doing any cooking this week, I do need to order the turkey and lamb, so I wanted to get a head start on our whole menu. I’m pretty happy with it overall, though I did see a chef on “Chopped” make potatoes sauteed in duck fat and I can’t get that out of my mind. I’ll have to just file that idea away for another time.
Thanksgiving doesn’t seem complete without pecan pie, but I am forgoing it this year since we already have a ton of dessert — more than 15 people can eat. What’s on your holiday menu?
Roasted Turkey + gravy
Roasted Leg of Lamb (J. has been wanting to cook one)
Pumpkin Pie (from Connie’s Bakery, through a school fundraiser)
M&Ms Brownies (at the request of my boys)
