Gastronomic Success

And a good time was had by all.

Baked the pies and roasted the Turkey on Wednesday, so all I had to do today was make the mashed potatoes, the stuffing (stovetop) and set everything out. We had turkey sandwiches, which consisted of a slice of white bread (we usually eat wheat, so this was a treat) a layer of turkey, a thick layer of cranberry sauce, a layer of stuffing, a glob of mashed potatos, and then you cover the entire thing with gravy. Not just any gravy, but the best gravy on the face of the planet. It was a new recipe that involved cooking sherry, dijon mustard, turkey drippings and endless stirring and reducing. Let's just say it was worth it.

I don't think I'm ever going to make a traditional turkey dinner again. I'ts so much easier doing the turkey the day before. Gives me a chance to enjoy the day too.

But honestly, I ate too much.

That is a great idea! Turkey sandwiches. Why didn't my mom think of that...

We did a bunch of prep ahead of time which made the day totally unstressful!

Sounds yummy. I'm going to have to try that sherry-dijon gravy recipe for Christmas.
