It’s officially Thanksgiving day but it’s technically still the night before. I’m getting ready to call it a night. I’ve done what I can. Tomorrow will just have to happen.
I got a call today from a friend who is hosting her first ever Thanksgiving. She’s all freaked out and stressed out about the bird. The stuffing. The potatoes.
She wanted me to walk her through some of the recipes that I use. Since I was in the midst of prepping for the big day when she called I cut to the chase.
“Ok. So you know when you eat at a restaurant and you have their mashed potatoes or the chicken or steak and you think…how did they make it so well? Why can’t my food be this good. What makes this food better? You know what makes it better? Butter.”
That’s the truth. It’s not the organic ingredients or farm raised turkey. It’s not the Martha Stewart vs Ina method. It’s the butter. Obscene amounts of butter. In the potatoes, on the turkey. The stuffing? Oh it’s stuffed with butter.
When you think you’ve used enough – use more. Want to choose a healthier alternative? Have it. It won’t be as good.
Happy Thanksgiving people. Because butter.
Here’s a pic of my one of the turkeys (made with clarified butter and regular butter). Call 911.
