I was thinking of you, Heidi....and Misssy and a few others whose dinners make me hungry!!!
My Knight and I are cooking tomorrow. By accident one year, we cooked the turkey upside down (breast down) one year. We turned it a few hours into cooking. We were shocked at how nice and moist it was. So every year we do the upside down and turn thing. We make a sage and thyme homemade dressing. The dressing has stale bread, celery, carrots, onions as well as the pepper, sage and thyme. Yes, we stuff the bird, but use a food thermometer to test it. Sometimes we take it out when we turn the bird and cook the rest in a pan in the oven.
We will also bake butternut squash, in the skin. We cut the squash, get out the seeds, put it in a pan with 1/2 inch of water, skin side up, and bake until tender. We have some hubbard squash in the freezer that we will thaw (by the way, the best way to open a hubbard is to put it in a clean plastic bag and drop it with force onto concrete!!! LOL).
The potatoes will be mashed and we will have scalloped corn. Scalloped corn is a Depression Era or farm family way of spreading out the meal. Bread crumbs, creamed corn, and an egg are combined in a casserole dish and baked until browned and a little firm.
The pies will be pumpkin and apple...no I don't do crusts- they are store bought, and the pumpkin is canned
