    Default Someone else's kitchen for TG

    My SIL will have just had knee surgery, so she wants to have TG at her
    house, but she also won't be in any condition to cook.
    It's been suggested that I do the cooking at her house. I'll show up
    early with the bread pre-crumbled and celery and onion pre-chopped for
    the dressing, and the green beans pre-cut and bacon already fried and
    crumbled.

    The meal:
    Turkey, unstuffed, cooked breast side down until the end
    Dressing (white bread, sage/onion/celery)
    Mashed potatoes
    Gravy
    Southern style green beans with bacon (I'll go with 1 hour)
    Baby cut carrots cooked buttery tender
    Cranberry sauce made fresh the previous day
    Crusty Italian bread
    Lots of butter at room temp by meal time.
    A full pepper mill, and a shaker with popcorn&nut salt

    My wife can make the desserts.

    --Bryan, who has to go to a funeral today at a stinkin' funeral home.

    If you want to do something more interesting with the carrots, consider the
    recipe Pennies From Heaven in The Silver Palate Cookbook. In addition to
    being delicious, it is great cooked ahead and reheated. The only change I
    make is that I do not cook the carrot "coins" as long as they suggest.

    Is having it at your house not a good idea?? I'd hate to do the whole
    meal in someone else's kitchen wondering where this is located, where
    is that, do you have this, and on and on. And packing up all you
    might need would be aggravating for me.

    What's TG? What's with the usage of SIL and TG when you take the time
    to write out and entire story?

    SIL = Single Indian Lady
    TG = Trans-Gendering

    Everybody knows that.

    My "sister-in-law" does not want to go anywhere because she will have
    just had surgery.

    I *never* do "interesting" things on "Thanksgiving," and don't like
    carrots unless they are well done.

    would be obvious.

    Could we please get back to the original post? Most of that menu sounds
    like it could easily and safely be nearly complete the day before at home in
    familiar territory. Too many unknowns for cooking in someone else's
    kitchen. Just a simple little thing nobody thought to mention like the oven
    runs 30 high could cause you some grief. Polly

    I am so sorry. She will have already been through enough. Why torture her
    with your type of cooking?
