You always hear of Thanksgiving horror stories when someone attempts their first Thanksgiving meal. Honestly? I am thankful to say that I didn't have one! Yes, there were a few glitches here and there, but in the end, I didn't set the turkey on fire, burn any dishes, or drop anything on the ground... amazing...
Though there weren't any mishaps, there was a little tension. It started at about 2:30pm. Guests were coming at 6:30 and I realized at 2:30 that I was behind schedule when the turkey was not yet in the oven. Ask my parents... I was Skyping them while I was frantic cooking in the kitchen, asking question left and right about how I should do this turkey. I guess I could have been more prepared. It didn't help that I had to convert all my measurement and translate all my ingredients... if I could even find my ingredients at the store.
