Thanksgiving prep and snow

I got a bunch of cooking prep done yesterday, including cutting up the turkey, making vegetable stock and brine for the turkey, and then roasting the turkey trimmings and making turkey stock for use today in the stuffing and gravy.

Meanwhile, the snow continued to fall for most of the day, and we awoke to a foot of snow in some places.

I hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Greens, beans, and rice

I improvised a dish with some collard greens, some black beans, and rice, plus onions, carrots, and some dice kielbasa. And I started with two strips of thick-cut Mckenzie bacon.

It came out very well; Beloved Wife had to go back for a second helping! And I got to use my birthday dutch oven again.
