Well, I did it. I hosted my first holiday! On Saturday we cooked up the best turkey we could find and I introduced my Bulgarian family to Thanksgiving. It turned out to be much easier than I thought. I had been worried that I may not be able to find all the right ingredients to make the meal as traditional as possible. The only thing missing was cranberry sauce.
I'm sorry to say that I pretty much ruined the mashed potatoes. How is that possible, you ask? Well, I had seen a recipe that added sour cream and I thought, perfect! We had about 2 tablespoons of sour cream left over from the green bean casserole so I plopped them into the taters. Big mistake. A few hours later and we had the most sour, bitter mashed potatoes ever. Oh well, live and learn. The most important dish turned out perfectly:
All in all, I'd say it was a success. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
