Bobby’s recipe turned out so delicious! YUM! I couldn’t stop eating the turkey. Maybe it’s because of all the butter we rubbed all over it. Think I’m kidding?
And then the bird was done (and pretty darn gorgeous, too)!
We also made creamy yummy mashed potatoes, Bobby’s sage gravy (omg), and my mom’s cranberry sauce. Yay, Thanksgiving Part II!
Oh, and Pepperidge Farm dressing…we were too lazy to make our own.
And that cranberry sauce? It was my grandmother’s recipe and my mom made it every year while I was growing up. It’s so easy and SO good. But this was the first time I made it without her supervision, so we were pretty happy it turned out so well.
1 1/2 cups port (this is why it’s so good)
1 cup sugar
1 16-ounce bag cranberries
Combine port and sugar in medium saucepan over medium-high heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil and boil five minutes. Add cranberries and cook until skin begins to pop. Cook about five minutes more. Remove from heat.
And that was our Fake Thanksgiving 2010! See ya next year!
