I love Thanksgiving and I love turkeys. But my all time favorite part about the TG meal is the mashed potatoes and gravy. You may say "But you can have that any old time" but my reply to you is "not so my friend." Thanksgiving is about the only time of year that I get to have gravy made from actual turkey drippings. It is far superior to the store bought mixes or the ever dreaded gravy from a bottle. And my favorite mashed potato recipe to go with it makes it the best potatoes and gravy of the year.
And so this post is in honor and anticipation for this blessed meal.
