I do 100% of the cooking here. My husband doesn't even know how to turn the oven on. Although, in his defense, he leaves for work at 7 am and gets home around 7 pm so it's not as if he just sits around doing nothing watching me cook.
I've never brined a turkey, I wouldn't even know how. Does it make it tender or what?
I always make a very traditional Thanksgiving dinner...trukey, stuffing, mashed potatos with gravy, rolls, sweet potato casserole and of course green bean casserole with crunchy onions! Pumpkin pie and Apple pie for dessert although this year I'm going to make "Nantucket Cranberry Pie" again because they all loved it last year.
