Before we get into crafty ideas, maybe some of you out there need a little 101 on turkey baking. I know I do. I just found out that my side of the family is not doing a traditional family gathering. Everyone is branching off to do their own thing. It SUCKS because I feel like every since my dad died in 2009, our family gatherings have dissolved. No worries though, we are blessed to have Patrick’s family and my Uncle Joe’s – those are two houses of love and lots and lots of familia, I’m happy! It’ll be a busy day! One of my goals for 2014 is to redo my whole house to make it family-gathering ready. But for a close-knit feeling this week, I think I’m going to go all out and make our own turkey dinner. The first place I looked was to Presleys Pantry and of course, she has a full tutorial of how to do things right!
