My first Thanksgiving in Minnesota was a joyously delicious one : I used Ina's recipe for her make-ahead turkey (don't ask why, because it was completely spontaneous) - it was perfectly cooked, tender, and moist , though my daughter missed the traditional stuffed turkey. My daughter made those beautiful apple flowers, which I would love to learn how to make, AND a cranberry pie. Mashed potatoes, and I'm quite sure we had salad and a green vegetable, but I've forgotten. Almost as soon as we had cleaned up after Thanksgiving, we woke up to five inches of beautiful fluffy snow - the first snow I've seen out here. I hope your Thanksgiving was delicious and warming, with friends and family, or thoughts of family. And now - onto getting supplies to make these reindeer cookies with the grandchildren- and looking for a few sleds and a hill to race down! Happy December 1st!
