It is over, and everything was delicious. I need to go on a diet immediately. 

Lessons learned:

  • Those roasting bags are the very best. 
  • Forget trying to make a roux for the gravy. The old “flour and broth mixed into the drippings” works best.
  • Wear leggings to dinner. They expand. See “dieting” above.
  • Dessert is superfluous, but damn, we ate it anyway.
  • Stuffing inside the turkey. Who promulgated that myth that it would poison you? It’s the only way to go!
  • I would post a photo of my holiday table, but my media button is broken. The blog needs a long-due overhaul.
  • There is no such thing as “too many side dishes.”
  • Ocean Spray cranberry is just FINE.
  • The more really is the merrier.
  • Turkey Tetrazzini was invented for a reason.
  • I need a nap.
