The thought of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner brings to mind memories of a long buffet style table crowded with bowls of gravies, sides, stuffing and desserts, barely leaving enough space for the napkins and silverware. All of these sides were simply teasers, surrounding the star of the evening, a 10-12 pound oven roasted turkey with a bronze finish and shiny, smooth texture. Unbenounced to us, what we saw as a delicious turkey that simply needed to be submerged in gravy, was nothing more than another over cooked Thanksgiving victim.
Thanksgiving. That time of year where family members put their differences aside, clear their busy schedules to gather around the dinner table in hopes of drowning our everyday sorrows with the comforting taste of roasted turkey along with an endless variety of intensely filling side dishes.
