The cranberries are simmering away, the butternut squash is roasting away and soon pumpkin pie will be baking away.
|Cranberries simmering on the stove this morning|
We have a 23.68 pound fresh turkey in the fridge just waiting to hop into the oven tomorrow morning and do his part for our dinner. To Mr. Tom Turkey, you have the gratitude of a thankful family. I have been buying fresh turkeys for several years now, as I am so tired of the anxiety of defrosting the big ole butterball. Some years worse than others, especially when, on occasion, another frozen bag of "innards" would appear way down somewhere unexpected. Now don't anyone tell me that has not happened to you!! lol!!
So scurrying around, cleaning (rather haphazardly, I might add), baking, checking my 100 lists, getting excited for the arrival of our lovely Raethan and her sweet husband, herding kittens, and looking forward to the quiet evening of happy chatter, the roll of dice on the board games, and thoroughly enjoying this Time Between Time holiday.
And absolutely no thought given to all the Black Friday nonsense (or Black Thanksgiving for that matter, ludicrous). Stay home with the family. Don't be bullied by the retail industry into racing around like turkeys without their heads trying to find the best, better, cheapest deal on most likely made-in-China crap that will be broken or forgotten by New Years. Okay, sorry for the rant.
How is your Eve of Thanksgiving going???
