What’s Cooking?!: Thanksgiving Edition

  • November 15, 2011

I enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving meal and by me having a young family, a large turkey and all of the heavy duty spreads will be entirely too much for us and leftovers are a pet peeve of mine so I like to make enough fill us for the day.

On the menu for /thanksgiving, there will be the following:

Stuffed Turkey breast with cornbread stuffing
Honey glazed ham slices
Homemade cranberry sauce
Macaroni and cheese baked
Collared greens
and for dessert, Sweet Potato Pie, 2!
