I Have A Confession

I’ve never made a turkey.

***Ducking for cover***

That’s right, I’ve been married for almost 9 years and although Kyle pretty much BEGS me every. single. year. to make one, I have yet to do so.

I’m skeered.

I don’t want to touch its insides.

I don’t want to pull out the bag of gunk.

I don’t want to see its neck.

I want nothing to do with it, except eat it after someone ELSE makes it!

I’ve been told that making a turkey is one of the easiest things EVER.  I don’t doubt the people that tell me that, but I don’t know.  It just grosses me out more than just making chicken breasts or something.

If I was a betting person, I’d bet that this year is NOT the year that I’m going to attempt to make a turkey.  Just sayin’.

HOWEVER…

IF I WAS going to make a turkey, what are your tips and tricks?  I’m sure I can’t go much longer putting this off.  My husband may just call in enforcements if I don’t get on it, or worse, do it himself and I don’t exactly trust him in the kitchen {he’s barely made anything himself besides putting a pot pie or pizza in the oven}!

I DO like to cook and bake though.  This year, we’re going to my mom’s for Thanksgiving, which isn’t usually the case.  Most years we go to her house the Saturday before or after Thanksgiving.  She requested us on Turkey Day this year though, so we’re going.  And being that it’s my first year gluten-free, I feel “safer” eating there since she’s already gluten-free and I don’t have to worry about cross-contamination, etc.

For our small gathering of seven people, I am making the following:

Caramelized yams with toasted marshmallows by the Recipe Girl
Pecan pie with whiskey maple cream sauce by The Pioneer Woman {with a homemade GF crust}
French baguette from You Won’t Believe It’s Gluten-Free
And possibly a Pumpkin quick bread from the same cookbook.

I’m looking forward to gorging on all of this gluten-free food and spending time with the fam!

What are you making for Thanksgiving and where are you going to spend your day?
