THE SOUTHERN GIRL’S MENU

I’m a big fan of having a tasty salad before all the Thanksgiving festivities. This fills up my stomach so I don’t overeat and also gives me a healthy dose of spinach.
Brining the turkey is a great way to seal in the moisture of the bird, and at the same time, enhances the flavor.
