Fake-Thanksgiving was a Success!
As I mentioned the other day, I came up with the brilliant (and *very* last-minute) plan to throw an early Thanksgiving feast yesterday in order to prepare and photograph some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes. I invited a bunch of friends over and got busy in the kitchen. The party was a success, and I can't wait to share the results. This week (and possibly some of next) is going to be "Thanksgiving Week" here on Always Order Dessert, with recipe ideas for your holiday table.
I'm editing and uploading the photos right now so you'll have to come back tomorrow for the details, but I've posted a little sneak peek of the turkey so you can see how lovely and golden it was. Careful observers might also notice that my bird is upside-down. That is Thanksgiving tip no. 1 around here! Birds are always better when they sleep (in the oven) on their bellies--it's the secret to a perfectly juicy and succulent breast every single time.
I can't wait to share the rest with you!
