I had to work on Thanksgiving. I knew I had no energy or patience to cook after producing a 3-hour show. So, we decided to save our Thanksgiving cooking/feast for Saturday.
I always feel guilty about spending the holiday away from our family in So. Cal and in Buffalo. If you sign on to work in TV news, that’s just one of the realities for our schedules. I’m still happy to mess around in the kitchen with my immediate family: Mark and Daisy. This reminded me of our Thanksgiving Meal in Topeka.
On our menu: Rosemary Sausage and Chicken. I found the recipe in our Cuisinart Slow Cooker Recipe book. (The book came with the Slow Cooker). The veggies, sausage, chicken, chicken stock and wine simmered inside the Slow Cooker for 8 hours.
Mark also made the boxed versions of stuffing and scalloped potatoes.
Next month – We’ll see our family in So Cal.
