I have almost 100 Sookie/ True Blood recipes on this blog and I thought we'd have a pretend Thanksgiving dinner with Sookie and the Bon Temps gang. Haha
This year Jason bought a turkey deep fryer at Sheridan’s Sport Shop and lots of peanut oil and he's going to deep fry the 10 # turkey that he bought at Walmart. It's going to be raining tomorrow so everyone will have to pile inside.
Sookie is making: Corn Bread Dressing ( not stuffing!)
Green Bean Casserole
Sweet Potatoes with marshmallow
Gran's Pecan Pie
Below you'll find more recipes.
Who else do you think is coming to dinner?
What are they bringing ?
Happy Thanksgiving Ya'll!
