I gave up my post as Thanksgiving cook when I married JB. With the out-laws a mile up the road, we usually celebrate with them. I just bring a side dish or dessert.
For the past couple of years, JB has been cooking the turkey in his great big ole stainless steel turkey cooker.
It's the only time--in my entire life--I have heard anyone say, on Thanksgiving, "Is there any more turkey?"
I have done my share of roasting the bird the conventional way. All that cooking and planning and setting that beautiful table--and it's over in 20 minutes.
And we all know, it's just a dry run for Christmas.
