Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey. That combined with kids, houseguests, and having to make an endless supply of side dishes all timed in perfect harmony...it's a lot for one person. Hopefully by the time you've read this post, I will have answered any of your looming questions, but if there is still anything you are concerned about, please leave a comment at the end of the post, and I'll be sure to answer.

1. What if I overcook the turkey, and the breast meat is dry? Slice it thin and soak it in warm chicken or turkey stock.
2. How do I get the skin beautiful golden brown? Lots of butter! Separate the skin and push butter directly over the meat then spread more butter over the outside of the skin. Also cover just the breast of th…

Snapshots


I have a bit of an announcement for this Snapshots post. My husband has gotten a job in Texas, and we will be moving there next month! We are rather excited for several reasons, though we will miss some of our favorite date spots in Tulsa. We've both lived in Tulsa at different times in our lives, however, so we're very much looking forward to starting a home together somewhere that is new to the both of us.

So we've been busy cleaning and organizing...and trying to get rid of old stuff we don't want to lug around to the next place. And he's been working so hard to cover extra moving expenses.



We still managed a date this week. Although, we've agreed to stop paying attention to movie reviews. We were interested in the new mummy movie, though it got such bad reviews, while It Comes at Night got a high rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Well...we would both agree that it is not a movie worth seeing at all. We're still looking forward to the new Pirates of the Caribbean, the new Planet of the Apes movie, and the new Annabelle movie.

We've really enjoyed a few new shows lately. Ken and I have been catching up on BBC's Broadchurch, and just watched The Mist on Amazon. What are you guys watching lately?



For one of those cozy nights in, Ken brought home an amazing under $10 wine. This Turning Leaf Cabernet has notes of dark berry and spice. It almost tastes like a dark red blend with a bit of sweetness to it. We highly recommend it.

We also decided to try some gin one evening. He had it with an apple soda, and I made a lime-berry gimlet recipe for the blog.


Also this week, we got our wedding prints and photo book in the mail! They're so beautiful, I can't wait to frame and hang them in our new home.🙂

Well hopefully this summer heat subsides, and you guys have a great weekend!!

    We just finished binge-watching the new season of House of Cards. Frank Underwood is what Trump would be if he had a brain....
