Happy Friday. As I mentioned before, my “fowl beast” was 21 pounds… for 4 people. I’ve eaten more turkey this past week than I have in the last few years combined.

If you’re going to make a green bean casserole this year, fry your own onions! It can be done ahead of time and makes a massive difference. I also made a spicy casserole last year, adding fried jalapeños into the mix, amazing. Here’s a quick guide of how to make some fried onions (or jalapeños): Continue reading
