My family has developed a new tradition. For the past several years, we've been buying two fried turkeys from my parents' church. They get a professional turkey frying team in and are better than any catering/restaurant place around and cheaper. We freeze one for Christmas and heat up the other for Thanksgiving. (I picked them up yesterday, so the turkeys have been parked in the refrigerator for a day.) And I make the pie. This year it's straight sweet potato, which isn't terribly different from the Libby's pumpkin recipe for the spices, but I had to cook the potatoes first to mash them up. That's why there are microwaves!
