The Fall book fair is my big thing during the school year, and once it's done, it's only a few days until Thanksgiving. Which is a long-winded way of getting to the Four Foods on Friday for this week, since it's all about the turkey holiday.
#1. Stuffing. Boxed or from scratch?
From scratch, definitely. My mother-in-law makes a stuffing with fresh sausage that is TO DIE FOR.
#2. If you were served the perfect Thanksgiving dinner what would it be?
I have it served every year! Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, peas, mashed potatoes, rolls - I even like the rutabega! I guess the only thing I would add would be my friend Kelli's amazing sweet potato casserole.
#3. What’s your favorite Thanksgiving leftover?
The day-after sandwich: turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce on Martin's whole wheat potato bread. I only have it after Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I really look forward to it.
