Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! It's one of my two favorite holidays, and this year, once again, I'm making the turkey. This is the fifth year in a row that I'm in D.C. for Thanksgiving. I think I spent it with Mrs. Fickle's family before that, and though I can peg approximately the last time I had Thanksgiving with my family, I honestly don't remember it. One of these years...

I'm trying a few more herbs on the turkey this year, and we'll see how it turns out. A few years back I made a maple glazed turkey with white wine gravy. It was fabulous. But the friend we celebrate with is a bit more of a traditionalist, so I'm sticking to your standard roast turkey, and the herbs are my way of making it a little more interesting. I hope it works. Throw in the stuffing, the potatoes, the other sides, keep away from the cranberries, and though you don't save room for pie eat a piece anyway, and you've got yourself an amazing meal. I can hardly wait. The turkey is in as I write this, and it smells delicious. Though it smells like I may have used too much rosemary...

Have a great Thanksgiving y'all!

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life

That makes me sad that it has been 6+ (?) years since you've had Thanksgiving with us! I can't believe it has really been that long.

You'll be at our house for Christmas Eve this yea right? or not?
