it’s wednesday afternoon…i should be working around the house, but i’m not.
i’m sitting in the living room and smelling the beginning of thanksgiving dinner.
countdown: 24 hours, 42 minutes.
thought i would give you my top five thanksgiving taste sensations…farra style.
we always begin the day with wanda’s home made cinnamon rolls. soft, warm bread…loads of buttery, cinnamon goo in every layer…sticky, sweet white frosting everywhere. the smell of these puppies is almost as good as eating them.
an unbelievable way to begin the day.
next up…the mashed potatoes and gravy.
and not just any mashed potatoes. these are home made and full of butter, cream cheese and sour cream and then baked in the oven to form a crust on the top and bottom.
and wanda is the turkey gravy queen.
there is absolutely nothing like the taste of cranberry sauce and turkey together on fresh made rolls, the day after thanksgiving. these little sandwich creations are worth waiting the whole year for.
have i told you that wanda is an amazing cook? she always bakes our two favorite pies: pecan and a socal favorite, tollhouse pie…like a large, gooey chocolate chip cookie. if you’ve never had it, you need to stop by the farra crib for a taste.
the greatest of farra thanksgiving traditions? we all get our own bottle of martinelli’s sparkling apple cider! when our boys were young, this was the coolest thing ever. come to think of it…it still is!
so how about you and your family…
what are your favorite palate-pleasers?
what are the foods that make your thanksgiving dinner memorable?
