Thanksgiving - with TENT!

My Mom's Roast Turkey
I am starting a little late on my preparations for our Thanksgiving feast.  Not to worry --will get quite a bit done over the next three days.  Tomorrow I will need to make the turkey stock for the make-ahead gravy.
Last year my husband added a heated tent to our celebration and we are doing it again this year.  I can't begin to tell you how special the tent is...all 30 people at one long table makes me so happy.  I just love it and love him for doing this for our family!  I hope you are way ahead on your preparations and hopefully some of my recipes have made your job a little easier.  I got lots of feedback last year and I was thrilled to hear that so many friends were cooking up My Mom's Roast Turkey!  It is so easy and always turns out perfect.  Happy Thanksgiving! xoxo
