Cooking for Thanksgiving

Today I'm off work and I'm preparing for all of my family and Eric's parents to come for Thanksgiving. We are in charge of making the turkey this year. This last couple of years we've gotten a Cajun one from Popeye's, but decided to make our own. I did research on and found a good one. After rubbing butter, salt, pepper and garlic on it, put it in a baking bag and pour in 2/3 bottle of sparkling apple cider (or champagne if you aren't Baptist-ha!). It is supposed to be super moist. I'm also making broccoli cheese casserole, sweet potato casserole, brownies and pumpkin cheesecake squares (also a recipe I found on Today Luke and I have Ty and Harlan over. So they have been playing Playstation 2, action figures and we've been playing board games in between cooking and laundry. Looking forward to tomorrow! I love having everyone over.

The turkey was incredible! My mom-in-law said in 60 years she had never seen turkey fall off the bone. Search for Worlds Best Turkey at I was so proud. I've never been to Monticello. Do you have a Wal-Mart? :) I would only move somewhere if they had a Wal-Mart. Ha!
