A week ago, I sat down with my husband, and asked him how he thought the Thanksgiving vegetable beds were going to turn out.
He didn’t say much, but when I asked him what he thought of the turkey, turkey legs, cranberries, and sweet potatoes he gave me a blank stare.
They’re just not good enough for this turkey, he said.
And the cranberries?
Not good enough either.
The next time I was tempted to make some for a turkey, I had to pause to make sure he understood.
“They’re not going to be good enough,” he said when I tried to explain the reasons.
“It’s not going, it’s not, it won’t be enough.
It’s going to take years to make it.”
If you’ve been on the fence about making a turkey turkey dinner, I highly recommend it.
It can be quite challenging to make something that will taste great, but the ingredients are so well thought out and so tasty, it really does make all the difference.
And if you’re not willing to commit to a long time to make the turkey dinner at all, there are other, much cheaper ways to make your own turkey dinner.
For starters, you can make your Thanksgiving dinner from scratch.
I made a turkey roast for Thanksgiving dinner a few weeks ago.
It was a simple roast, using a lot of fresh, seasonal vegetables, and I didn’t have to make a whole lot of them.
It came out great.
If you’re looking for a much more complicated Thanksgiving dinner, like one that includes potatoes, beans, or sweet potatoes, you’ll need to find a recipe online that can be used to make turkey dinner for just one.
The turkey roast was easy, too, as it came together in minutes.
And once you have the recipe, you don’t have a lot to do but cook up the turkey.
As for the other veggies, I used about six large, leafy vegetables.
That’s all the veggies I had in my pantry that I could fit into the oven.
I could have used a lot more if I’d had the time.
The cranberries were a little more complicated, because I had them on hand.
They weren’t that good.
But I had plenty of carrots and celery, which were pretty good, too.
I was also using cranberries as a substitute for potatoes because I wanted the dinner to be light, so I decided to use both, which resulted in a really good Thanksgiving dinner.
