Turkey “Food Baby” Day

Ten days until Thanksgiving! A day where it is socially acceptable to stuff yourself until your belly is swollen with food giving you that pregnant look that I like to call “food baby”.

What’s on TV?

Then you plop yourself in front of the TV and fall into a deep snore-filled slumber.

Since I spent almost the whole month of October in Houston there is no reason to go back so soon. I have decided to spend Thanksgiving in NYC.

I was a little worried about the turkey portion of the meal because I have never cooked one.

But my mom, once again, comes to the cooking rescue.

Peppered Smoked Turkey

She sent me a New Braunfels Smokehouse Peppered Smoked Turkey. It is already fully cooked. Once it is thawed I just pop in the oven for 20-30 minutes to heat up.

The New Braunfels Smokehouse magazine states it is, “slow-smoked to golden perfection, with a generous dusting of aromatic cracked pepper, our ultra-tender signature turkey looks fantastic and tastes even better.”

The picture makes it look so appetizing that I kind of wish the magazine came in 3D.

I’m ready for some more food!

Now I just need side dishes. My roommate and I both want green bean casserole. I want dressing with gravy (mom’s recipe) and either rice or Zesty Mac & Cheese (my recipe).  (Yes, I do have a few recipes up my sleeve.)

My stomach is already growling. Good think I have a roast in the Crock-Pot for dinner tonight!
