Here are my cooking notes from Thanksgiving 2008. The carrot soup recipe I got from T. at a dinner party many moons ago. I make it so frequently now that I didn't even write out my recipe! Thanks, T.! The green beans recipe came from Mollie Katzen on NPR. I followed her directions word for word, and they came out perfectly. She's a genius with the veggies. The cranberry relish was also from NPR--in a very entertaining article by Susan Stamberg. The audio version neglects to mention the 3/4 C. sour cream, which is an ESSENTIAL ingredient. Listen to it anyway because it's funny. And if you want to know how to make delicious turkey, you'll have to ask my girlfriend.
