THANKSGIVING DINNER 2015

 THANKSGIVING DINNER 2015
DINNER AT HOME

Very thankful to be home with my Wife and Daughter on Thanksgiving.  Really nowhere else I would rather be.  So blessed to have family, love and great food along with friends on this special day.
We began prepping for Thanksgiving Dinner the night before with me making the Compound Herb Butter, Roasted Garlic,  Sausage, Apple and Sage Dressing, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Creamed Corn in advance.  From experience we have found that trying to make everything on Thanksgiving day is just too much stress with too much going on in the kitchen and in the oven.  This meant that we only had to cook the Turkey and a few other dishes prior to our guests arriving.  Worked out very well and allowed us to relax, take a nap and enjoy the day before we dug into this huge feast.
