My favorite part of the meal is the after nap turkey sandwich!

I just finished the turkey neck stock. I got 6 containers 2-1/4 cups each.

Using the stock, I'll make brown rice, turkey gravy, and the rest will be used for a pork stew.

Dinner will be dark turkey (neck) meat in turkey gravy over brown rice made with turkey stock. for my vegetable I'll make green bean casserole.

Picked up 2 pre-brined turkeys from TJ's last night. A 13 and an 18 pounder. The 13 pounder is going to roast in the smoker while my wife's 18 pounder is going in the oven for her Spanish style turkey.

Thanksgiving Planning 2014 | Who's in?

I mixed up the bread dressing/stuffing with lots of herbage, and put it in the fridge in a crockpot. I'm hoping it makes it to our destination intact, it's really tasty!

I also thinly sliced a bunch of spicy deer sausage, gifted from a friend. As bourgeoise as it may be, there's something about deer sausage, Ritz crackers, and Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp cheddar. That's my appetizer, and I'm sticking to it!

We have a new development at my house... DH has announced that he would LOVE to cook the bird! This should be interesting but I am game... he's been scouring cookbooks, discussing oyster vs cornbread, vs herb (finally settled on that) and I am just a little nervous..... ;)

Funny you should mention that, Janet...my daughter told me yesterday that my son-in-law is starting to show an interest in cooking. He never did before, and she likes his newfound interest, but she's a little nervous he'll want to try something new for Thanksgiving.

I think the biggest issue might be getting the giblets out of the orifices. DH left them in the first bird he cooked when we were dating after assuring me that he knew what he was doing.
