Since my mom and sister are the Hardest Working People on the Planet, tomorrow will be easy for me. Also too, I only have to make potatoes and gravy, and we have the afternoon shift.
My brother ordered turkey and some such, even though I offered to cook one for us this year in plenty of time. Mom says it’s because she should be painting instead of cooking. *rolls eyes* For people who have most of the year off since they cater to holiday sales, you would think that the rest of my family would get it, but they don’t.
Back to the potatoes. I plan to try to make them as creamy as the best fried chicken places. I will whip them in the Magimix and add milk, butter, cream cheese and sour cream. YUM.
After years of trying, I will NOT make gravy at my mom’s house. I cannot cook on an electric stove. PERIOD. Since I won’t have the store bought turkey to use for starters, I bought some turkey bacon to start the rue. I’ll make the gravy her with that grease and some vegetable broth. I’ll add the boiled eggs and some turkey bits when I reheat it tomorrow. Not ideal, I know, but the gravy will be gravy without all of the “that’s never gonna get thick” I have heard the past few years.
