Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Happy gobbler day everyone that celebrates it. And if ya don't, happy uh... Thursday, Nov 25th! ;)
Had to get up early to prepare the turkey and pop it in the oven. I'll probably take a nap later once I put the temp down. Found a new recipe for preparing the turkey this year
I hope it's good. It has a lot of really good reviews/ratings.

Past 2 times I've made turkey I used the Alton Brown way. Brining it first and all that. I didn't really like the taste of it so trying something different.

I'm also making a sweet potato casserole and a cake.



I've made the cake before and people really loved it. I'm not a huge fan of that alcohol kick even if it is very mild, but it's been requested by DH's uncle so I made it again. I screwed it up though, but hopefully it still tastes OK lol.
If you like baking and you like coffee, I do recommend trying it though. Making the cake as is, the coffee flavor is very mild. If you read through the reviews though, lots of suggestions say to double the amount of coffee liquer etc for a stronger taste.
