Just Like Mom & Grandma Used To Make!
Home kitchens are usually busy but never more bustling than on Thanksgiving morning. Mom, Grandma, Aunt Mabel… or Dad and Uncle Bob… the names change from kitchen to kitchen and are just as varied as the menu of family favorites but one thing is certain… holiday meals are a labor of love. I love autumn! It’s the beginning of the holiday season and spending quality time with those we love the most. In our home, stuffed, roasted turkey is the star of the dinner table but it takes a lot of work to get it from the market to the turkey platter and this year I wanted to celebrate all the cooks who work so hard behind the scenes.
“Stuffing The Turkey” is a one-of-a-kind Thanksgiving extravaganza! My first goal is always realism, but I also wanted to bring the harvest indoors. Gourds, pumpkins, fresh apples & butternut squash color the landscape of the table… offsetting a raw turkey (which is never a delight to the eye, except to the most passionate chefs). Fresh baked pie, breads, & biscuits… baskets lined with warm plaid colors… it’s all here… right down to the spool of kitchen string to truss the turkey and my exclusive turkey baster!
This tribute to the unsung heroes of the holiday kitchen will find a home with one special collector and I hope he or she enjoys owning it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! May your holidays be warm, cozy and filled with good food, loving arms and happy kitchens!
