I understand the effort.  :-) Thank you to all the cooks!

      Trust me when I say I appreciate all the work that goes into making Thanksgiving dinner and I appreciate all the love that goes into it.


      I love to cook. Always have.  I cooked from 3am and finished the gravy at 8:30 this morning.   I cleaned up while things were cooking in the oven or microwave.

      I only have one circuit so I can only do one heating process at a time or it blows the circuit breaker.  :-)

      I made my dressing with apples and sausage. I cooked the sausage down and drained all the grease off a couple mornings ago so I wouldn't have to deal with that mess today and, I could cook it to perfection instead of being in a hurry.

      I made Yams. I nuke them with the skins on and then scrape out all the meat from the skin easily.  I cut in 1/2 stick of unsalted butter and some nutmeg then baked them. I've finally figured out it was nutmeg I was looking for and not cinnamon. (we are creatures of our memories)   No sugar added but mini marshmallows on top.

      Green beans with bacon fat. Mashed potatoes (I leave the skins on) & gravy, and of course, cranberry sauce.


It didn't take me 5 1/2 hours to eat.  :-) but I have leftovers.

Turkey taco recipe will be posted soon.


I hope you are enjoying your day!
