Congrats on the intimate holiday. It sounds lovely. And kudos on doing what you want.
but we NEED to have a turkey 'cause tradition".
23 years together and my wife and I have never cooked a turkey. I don’t have anything against it, but neither of us like it well enough to make it. So we’ve been a festival of all the sides. It makes me so happy to watch the Lions lose while cooking and eating four kinds of potatoes, stuffing, salad, and cranberry salsa. Enjoy the hell out of that duck!
