My favorite Holiday!

by missbabysunshine

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! For my favorite holiday of the year,  I cook for HOURS and DAYS… and I LOVE it. I always brine the turkey and this year, right before it went in to the oven, I slathered pork belly on top (Sort of like self-basting). Pork + Turkey= Porkey?

I’m way too busy to take photos right before the dinner but I managed to take few.

and more iphone photos…
