Evolution of a Thanksgiving Dinner
I was pretty much on my own cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year. To be fair, my family offered to help but I’m stubborn and a bit of a control freak and just wanted to do it all myself. So here’s what I made: turkey (brined last night), stuffing (both in bird and out), mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows, dinner rolls (not homemade), and pumpkin cookies. And here is the evolution of Thanksgiving Dinner: from taking the bird out of the brine, to claiming a drumstick for myself.
