The turkey is relaxing in its briny bath. This will be my third year making the turkey this way – I follow this recipe to the letter and make the gravy too. Our very own Bookish Girl is going to try this recipe – sans the gizzardy bits. Maybe once she gets a few Thanksgivings under her belt, she will try the gizzardy bits. They really do make a fantastic gravy.
Now I will begin to make the dessert. Kathleen thinks I only dress up Costco cheesecakes …… ha! We are actually going to a friend’s house for dessert and I will be bringing this along, otherwise I would offer to save her some leftovers. Oh well …… I shall take a picture or two with which to torment her. she probably doesn’t like cranberries anyway. But I bet she’s a sucker for compote. Check it out – cranberry cheesecake.
D#1 is home safe and sound. And she really didn’t have all that much laundry – one load’s worth. But we’ve already had the hot chocolate. By the way, that machine makes wicked good cocoa. I went through ¾ of a gallon of milk yesterday.
Some was spent making lattes, but it certainly doesn’t bode well.
anyway, it is off to the kitchen for me…… I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
My husband makes cheesecakes from scratch as well. They are so delicious.
Oh for the love of all that is holy Ann! That is a positively EVIL thing to post. I have enough to do rather than think about wanting to make this cheesecake! Bad, wicked, naughty Ann!
Seriously though it sounds scruptious!
Have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!
Love the sound of the cheesecake! I’m baking pies today when I get home from work. Tomorrow we’re dining at a friend’s house. Enjoy your holiday!
Hey Chunkilicious ONE! Have a great bird day!
I’ll try really hard to refrain from making a comment about the fact that you have the cheesecake link on the page twice. That’s an interesting way to make Turkey.
Goofy heart thing. L, C
Mmmmmm, cheesecake is my #1 favorite! Yum.
Isn’t Wendy adorable? Are you her Thanksgiving mentor? Capable hands… I have no worries now.
I’m in awe of all you who can cook and enjoy it. Thank goddess for freinds and family or I’d starve. Have a fab T-day!!
I want that cheesecake as my next birthday cake. Please!
Thanks for the great links! I HAVE to make that cheesecake – yummmm!
It sounds like you have a great holiday in the works, Ann! I made that same turkey recipe for Christmas last year and it was a HUGE hit, I totally understand going back to the same recipe when it turns out like that :-)
I hope you and your family have a wonderful turkey day!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Happy Happy! I signed your map how about signing mine?
Wow. That cheesecake! Wow.
I survived!! I survived!!! I’m not sure it was the best Thanksgiving I ever had. But I got through it. I think the turkey was okay – it may have been a bit over cooked. Write it off to beginners un-luck. More details to follow soon. Thank you for the advice. Happy T-day!!!
