Quips & Anecdotes - Thanksgiving

So my family decided just this past Sunday (yes, four days ago) that we actually would be doing something for Thanksgiving dinner. Oh and by we, they meant that I'd be cooking the entire feast. I don't mind though - I love days that are just filled with food. Unfortunately, I have never roasted a bird before much less a turkey. With some tips and pointers (okay, more than just some...a lot) from my awesome friend who is a superb cook, I will tackle that turkey with the enthusiasm of a kid being let out for recess after a pop quiz. Wish me luck! I hope that you'll be having a great time stuffing your face today as well. My plan is to do roasted turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, garlicky green beans, bruschetta (Mom's request), and probably cheesy grits. What's going to be on your plate?
