You know how some people always say they perform better under pressure? I think I am one of those people. In just a few short hours (due to some last-minute changes), I pulled together a Thanksgiving feast for my family.
My action plan? I made only kitchen-tested recipes that I have made many times, and no turkey. Honestly I hardly like the stuff. Instead, I am serving the still-novel, juicy, quick-cooking and just plain delicious Rock Cornish game hens.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
