Malloy says he's in charge of Thanksgiving feast
HARTFORD, Conn.—Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he'll be in charge of the cooking for his family's Thanksgiving dinner, being held for the first time at the official residence in Hartford.
The freshman governor told reporters on Tuesday that he's planning to cook a "traditional" meal with a large turkey and a couple of turkey breasts. For the record, Malloy, an avid cook, does not brine his turkey to make sure it's juicy. Rather, he recommends cooking at a low temperature.
Malloy said he's also planning to cook a big pot of meatballs and sausage to eat over the weekend, as well as two kinds of stuffing. He said he's "toying with doing something with wild rice.
Thursday's guest list will include Malloy's in-laws, who are both in their 90s.
