A Turkey (OK, it was just a turkey breast, but still!)
Mashed Potatoes from scratch
I've been fortunate enough to always be near all my family where either my mother or my hubby's parent's would make our holiday meals. Now that we have moved away from them, I had to see if I could do it - and I did!!
I HATE to cook, and I figured out why - it's too much paper work!!
Let me explain. In order for me to get everything done at the same time, I had to read and re-read every recipe to see the time scope. Then I made a spread sheet and calculated when I needed to start each dish and what preparations could be done before hand. Whew!
