Hopefully there won’t be a part 2 to this, other than “Thanksgiving was awesome and a ton of people came over and we all had fun.”
But yeah. As things stand, a number of undergraduates and a few others don’t have a place to celebrate Thanksgiving in the area. So this means I have to get my rusty set of cooking skills together and activate them. From my previous attempts, my cooking isn’t that bad. It’s just slow and I’m nervous about everything. I think this time out, things might be awesome. Here’s the recipe for the turkey:
And reading over the directions, I’ve been reminded: get a stockpot, gotta make that brine.
Also on the menu is some green bean casserole as a side, and I’ve got rolls and plenty of pita chips, carrots and hummus to work as an appetizer. There should be cranberry sauce and potatoes forthcoming, though others have told me they’d like to take the lead on that. And there are desserts (bought cookies and chocolate and am looking forward to opening one of the bars). I just want more food. There are going to be 6-7 people around, at least. The turkey alone is a huge help, but some variety is going to be crucial to the whole thing.
If you’ve got suggestions, I’m all ears. I want to get full, drink something, watch a movie.
