Some Early Thanksgiving Prep


Caramelizing almonds to top the pumpkin chiffon pie, making whole-berry cranberry sauce for the table and for the cranmberry gelatin salad, roasting two turkey legs to get drippings so I can make the gravy ahead of time ...

I think I would be happy with just mashed potatoes and gravy, my favorite part of the meal. What a good idea to get turkey legs to make the gravy early!
Today I make sweet potato (already cooked and sliced)/granny smith apple slices in a dish and cover with maple syrup, brown sugar, butter and frangelica mixed to a sauce. It is always better the second day!
