In two weeks Chris and I are hosting our first Thanksgiving in Chicago for his family and grandparents.
We are just a little bit nervous about it so we decided to give it a test run this weekend. It was... a lot of work. So much work that about half way through I decided that I should be in charge of sides only and Chris should finish the turkey. He's a whiz in the kitchen so it just made the most sense. Of course that didn't stop me from taking this proud photo holding Chris's beautiful finished product as if it were my own when everything was said and done.
Have you ever stuffed a turkey? It's very uncomfortable. I wasn't fond of it. I just kept thinking, that poor bird, how degrading.
But it sure did look good. And it tasted even better. I'm not sure how Chris seasoned it exactly because I stopped watching after awhile and just started drinking wine, but it was incredible.
I pretty much stuck to the green bean casserole. Which we all know is super hard. And super classy. Anything that involves cream of mushroom soup and fried onion strips on top is always right up my alley. It reminds me of childhood.
A little serving of mashed potatoes because you just can't have a turkey without them.
Chris's famous "low-calorie" gravy...
And of course turkey cookies for dessert.
Kidding. I totally stole this photo from Pinterest. I didn't actually make these cookies but I definitely thought about them.
And one more shot of the beautiful bird.
Obviously it was a really exciting weekend. Welcome to winter, everyone.
Now more importantly, I'm actually giving away four pieces of the amazing CW by Corning Ware dishes you saw above. How great is their new line of colorful dishes? Not only are they wonderful to cook with, they're just so damn cute.
They're super easy to stack and are also oven/dishwasher/microwave safe. I own several pieces from their line now and can honestly say they hold up wonderfully! If you'd like to win some new dishes just in time for the holidays, simply enter below!
