For the first time in four years, we won’t be traveling during the Holiday season. There will be no 4AM drive to BWI airport in heavy traffic to catch a packed Southwest flight. No security lines. No grumpy flight attendants. No lost luggage. And no 2 hour layovers at the worst airport in the world (KC’s MCI).
This year, we’ll be only a short drive across town from Thanksgiving.
We’re also doing a majority of the cooking for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner. Here’s a look at our Pioneer Woman inspired menu:
Green Bean Casserole
The good stuff made with fresh green beans, and not a can of creamed soup in sight.
We purchased a potatoer masher at IKEA. Never mashed a potato in my life, so I’m trusting Pioneer Woman and the Sweds.
Every holiday meal needs a splash of Jack Daniels.
Philip is in charge of this. No idea.
We chose one of the easier recipes we could find.
I picked up 2 dozen rolls from a local bakery/deli, Someplace Else. Only $9.
Using my Mom’s recipe, but I’m pretty sure she got it here: http://www.food.com/recipe/buttermilk-pie-56
*There will also be a turkey. However, someone much older and wiser than us will be ensuring its perfection.*
Happy Thanksgiving Y’all!
