Cranberry Sauce

Last year, I made thanksgiving dinner in NYC. We rented a townhome for our 3 kids, son-in-law, our 6 year old granddaughter, and us. We had big plans all week, so I ordered the turkey & pies. I prepared the sides – deviled eggs, dressing, CRANBERRY SAUCE, and more. We even went to the Macy’s Parade in freezing temperatures. It was awesome!
