I will admit, I am not the worlds greatest cook. I do like to experiment in the kitchen by pretending to be a mad scientist. I use recipes as a guide and not as a must follow exactly tool. Which is why my meals always taste different, even my go to favorite meals. Variety is the spice of life, eh?
Growing up, I was the oldest of three girls. Funny how God throws you a curve ball in your life (as I am the mom to three boys). We were not the biggest girly-girls but we did enjoy helping my mom in the kitchen for the holiday meals.
My favorite side dish was mashed potatoes. There was something about those white fluffy goodness that just set my heart a pitter patter! It was like liquid white gold for this little girls heart. I loved it. You would even be able to see a pronounced excitement in myself and my sisters after preparing and even eating them.
Because we were not skilled chefs in the kitchen (and I dare to say that none of us are still very talented in this department today), the easy to prepare mix is fool proof. The ease of preparation on the gravy mix comes out perfect each and every time. This is something that I knew I couldn’t screw up in the kitchen. The McCormick’s Turkey Gravy Mix is made with natural spices, no artificial flavors or colors, no MSG, and has 0 grams of trans fat.
Knowing that I helped contribute to the Thanksgiving meal, I would take pride in my dish. I would make sure I would top my beloved mashed potatoes with McCormick’s gravy was like icing on the cake. Yummy!
There is something about Thanksgiving meal and having mashed potatoes and gravy that bring back good memories of home. I do not live near family, nor do I get the chance to see them for the holidays as often as I would like. One of the disadvantages of living in California when the rest of my family live back east.
I do have my memories, and I am delighted to share the tradition with my boys. They love to help in the kitchen. Using the McCormick’s gravy is easy even my 6 and 4 year old can help out too!
