turkey


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.

What lovely comments you left on the blog. Thanks so much. I have all time in the world right now since I got fired from my last job! Yup. Right out of the blue, but, God had something else in mind. Anyway I just love what you did for Thanksgiving! It's wonderful. This is how my daughter looks when we go to my sister's home for Holidays. I can feel the joy coming off the page. Excellent. I want to go to that house for Turkey day!

Hey Jennifer, great image. I too love the mashed potatoes!! I am also fond of the stuffing :).

Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog today. As for my ambidextrous nature... it just makes things most confusing. Nothing too fancy :).

Beautiful work, as always! Though turkey is the icon of Thanksgiving, I really believe it's ALL ABOUT THE SIDE DISHES! Give me a vat of potatoes and stuffing and I'm a happy gal!
