Here to wrap everything together in a neat lil bow is the good stuff... meaning the gravy. We hope everyone enjoys their holidays, and their feast, even if it does look a little different this year.
P.S. Don't forget the cranberry sauce. We shared our favourite earlier this year... Sylt Lingon (Lingonberry) organic preserves from IKEA Canada. They are where it is at when it comes to berries to pair with the beasts.
