We celebrated a lovely Thanksgiving this past Thursday. It has truly become my favorite holiday. Being in my kitchen for several days cooking for this meal gives me great satisfaction. And this Thanksgiving we were joined by our favorite neighbors, which made it all the more special.
This year I brined the turkey for the first time, and I will do it again next year. It was, in my opinion, the best turkey I ever made. We had Parker House Rolls...
and Maple Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Homemade Marshmallows. For those of you who turn up your nose to sweet potatoes with marshmallows, try these! It is the most talked about and most anticipated dish on my holiday table. It is the leftover that disappears from the refrigerator before anything else. And every year I put it under the broiler at the last minute while I'm madly dashing around... and forget about it. It still tasted delicious.
