Happy Thanksgiving!

tday2How has your week been so far? Did you cook over the weekend? Have you cleaned out the fridge so there is room for the turkey? Are your linens pressed? Do you have your time-table ready for the big day or are you one of the lucky ones and eating at someone else’s home?

Despite the fact they are predicting snow for the big day, I am forging ahead with the biggest culinary day of the year and not listening to the forecast! I am a little bit behind the 8 ball this year and next week I’ll tell you why! I made my favorite Astor House Rolls over the weekend, but I still have squash to roast, creamed onions to make (I’m probably the last person on earth who likes these, but I had a craving for them this year), and I still need to make a pie! No rest for the weary cook! But in the meantime, I raise my glass to my ever faithful and supportive readers for a happy holiday and for a meal filled with delicious food!

Happy Thanksgiving!

MVK’s Endorsement of the Week: Thanksgiving Day Culinary Crisis Averted!
endors2I enjoyed listening to a recent “America’s Test Kitchen Radio” podcast, where Christopher Kimball chatted with an expert from Butterball’s Turkey Talkline and some of the questions they have received through the years. So don’t worry if you have questions about your turkey on Thursday, they will be available to answer them for you! Just call 1-800-Butterball! Or a local chef who has her own cooking shop has her own Thanksgiving hotline and will be accepting calls from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Thursday! You can call Chef Contos at 802-318-7328.

  1. My mother always made creamed onions for our Thanksgiving feast. I used to as well, but I was the only one who ended up eating them, so they fell off the rotation. Too bad because they are really quite tasty!

    • Apparently, everyone thought I still made these, despite the fact they were missing for a few years! But every time I go to make these I always wonder why, because they are fussy, since I use fresh onions. The papers get everywhere, I have to boil to get the skins off, they honestly are a lot of work. I need to remember the frozen ones! 🙂 I hope you had a wonderful holiday, Linda!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and TEOTH, Geoff, my son, ALWAYS makes creamed onions for our turkey day dinner. He wouldn’t ever skip that dish.
