Happy Cooking!

Hope you are going to have a great Turkey Day!  Just a few teaser photos from prep day in the kitchen.
Above...all the fixin's for our dressing-good bread, onion, celery, apple, chestnuts, herbs, salt and pepper, stock; ready to be baked tomorrow.

And I hope we can stay out of this until tomorrow...
Chef Dennis's amethyst topping bubbling away-cranberries, blueberries, sugar, lemon, cornstarch.  Topping for cheesecake tomorrow.

The green beans are washed and prepped; the butternut squash is peeled and cubed; and the potatoes are washed and cubed-soaking in water until tomorrow.  Oh, and of course, Tom the turkey is all ready to go!

And finally, maybe most importantly to ensure a well rested and energetic cook tomorrow...reservations at the local tapas place for dinner tonight!  What are you prepping today?  Happy times in the kitchen!
