I’m soooo excited and also extremely nervous. For the firs time ever, I will be hosting a thanksgiving dinner at my house. Usually thanksgiving happens at my mother in laws house, but this year I have some additional family coming in so now the shindig will be at our house!! I’ll be cooking the turkey ( I got a roaster oven for my birthday 🙂 sweet potatoe casserole, cranberry salad, and rolls and gravy, mother in law will be making stuffing and desserts, and my aunt coming in from Houston is bringing ham ( she doesn’t eat turkey) and Mac and cheese. I can hardly wait. I just hope I don’t screw up the turkey!! 🙂

@MrsFireChief: Turkey’s really aren’t that hard! Just relax, don’t stress, and trust your meat thermometer! I advise doing as much prep before people get there as possible, I’m always more stressed when people are offering to help all the time.

Good luck. This will be my 5th year hosting and it gets easier eavry time. Once you cook a turkey or the 1st time, it’s like cake walk after that. I suggest you brine your turkey as this makes for a moist turkey, since turkeys can be dry. And prep as much as you can before the big day…. we made all but one of our desserts today and a salad. Good luck.
