Sizzling Through The Season Week 10- Thanksgiving

This week the New York Giants are facing off the NFC East Division leaders the Eagles. A few weeks ago, the Giants unfortunately lost a heart breaking loss in Philadelphia. Its time to pay them back!

With thanksgiving a few weeks away and with the help of my wonderful wife, we made a few things of our favorite thanksgiving dishes. We made Corn Bread, Homemade Mac and Cheese and grilled up a Turkey London Broil. If you know me Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. The combination of indulging weeks worth of food in one day, watching football with family and passing out at some point during the stinky Cowboys game. I also cant forget the best day after, leftovers!!!!!!!

I hope you guys enjoy the video because I had a lot of fun making these dishes with my wife. Until next time I hope everyone has a great and safe thanksgiving! Go Giants!
