Here are the recipes I plan on making for my Thanksgiving dinner this year (and hopefully if I have time I’ll update some of these photos taken during my “early days” before I learned what little I know about food photography.
We may not cook all of them but Mama and I will try hard to get all this on the table. We usually only have turkey but since we're having company I want to bake a ham too since it's so good to have around when you have guests (you can fry it up for breakfast, make ham salad, have it on sandwiches and make a big ol' pot of ham and beans).
We'll also have yeast rolls, mashed potatoes and white rice (rice for us South Carolina folk and mashed potatoes for the Canadians) and either a sweet potato or pumpkin pie.
And if I had to tell you one recipe to be sure to try, it would have to be the Jive Turkey! I'm telling ya, it'll rock your world! If you want the moistest, most flavorful turkey EVER, this is the one for you!
I’d LOVE to know what you’re cooking! Comment below and tell me what’s on your menu!
