the turkey has entered the building

the countdown has begun. 3 days until turkey dinner!!!!
thanksgiving, with its total focus on food (oh yah, and thankfulness) may be my most favorite(ist) of all holidays.

this year will be the first time i ever attempt to cook an entire thanksgiving dinner. we've got family coming down (so there will be others to help when i find myself in the weeds), and i'm super excited to play hostess.

the menu is planned.
the groceries are purchased.
the turkey is thawing (no, i didn't get a fresh/organic/hormone free bird...i'm cooking old school).
and my tummy is already growling.

i'll keep you posted.

My only suggestion is to try to keep from puncturing the foil pan that you cook the turkey in, so that you can avoid a grease fire when attempting the gravy over a gas flame. Oh I lied, one more little oops, make sure that the turkey is fully thawed so that you can eat on the day that you originally planned. I love you and hope all goes well.
it will. My biggest responsibility this year is a rum bottom chocolate pie.
Happy eating.
