  • The Ultimate Southern Thanksgiving
    Growing up in a family of over achievers, meal times were no exception.

Just family, friends and copious amounts of food and drinks. Never less than three types of turkey and two kinds of ham, the menu that day dictated what we would eat for the next 2 weeks. If the path of excess leads to the palace of wisdom, then we had a second home every November. This menu has that spirit but with fewer leftovers.
