It's almost that time!! What time? TURKEY TIME!! Who doesn't love all that food?! I love the food, but I don't care for all the mess and stress that comes with the day. We are having a small Thanksgiving - just me, the hubs, the boys and the hubs' Dad. It's pretty busy at work today and I didn't have time to prep any pics last night, so I thought I'd share my planned menu with you.
Of course we're having turkey. I'd like to have something other than turkey, but the hubs nixed that idea. So, then, it becomes all about the sides. We're having mashed potatoes and gravy, sour cream fruit salad, chili corn casserole (both of those are family recipes), rolls, and cranberry sauce straight outta the can (nothing's too good for *my* family). Stuffing? I haven't decided yet. The hubs will. not. eat. stuffing. He told me that if I ever want to leave him, all I'd have to do is fix him a big plate with all his "won't eats" and he'd get the point. LOL Then there's the desserts. I'm not going the traditional route with pumpkin or pecan pie. A while back, my hubs' bestie made an awesome pumpkin cheesecake and I've made it every year since. My hubs also requested a cherry pie. Really? A cherry pie? In November? Yep. Because I love my hubs (and because they have cherries available in a can), I am making him a cherry pie. And guess what? I'm not ready. We have the turkey. And that's it. I have to go to the grocery store on my lunch break and brave the crowds. Please send positive energy my way - I'll need it to get through all stoopid people. I already hate crowds. Throw the stress of the holidays in there and it's even worse!!
What are your plans for Turkey Day? Are YOU cooking? What are you having? What's your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
