Normally we have prime rib on Christmas Day. But this year we felt like we didn’t get enough in the way of Thanksgiving leftovers (sandwiches!) so we decided on turkey.
But turkey dinner means a fair amount of prep work.
Cranberry sauce needs to be made. (This is crucial for the sandwiches.)
Stock for the gravy needs to be made.
Dried mushrooms rehydrated for the stuffing. The rehydrating liquid also gets used in the stuffing.
Everything all a’simmer.
