Turkey Day Countdown

It’s two days til Thanksgiving…do you know where your turkey is?

I did my big Thanksgiving shopping last Friday so mine is the refrigerator in the basement thawing out.  Today I am making another shopping list of everything I forgot to get the first time (how could I forget eggs??) and the few things that I typically wait until the day before to buy.

The other thing I did on Friday was get out my little folder with all my tried and true Thanksgiving recipes.


I know…I’m a dork.  But really, Thanksgiving is the one meal where we don’t venture too far off the beaten path.  Also in my folder is my little hour-by-hour game plan for *trying* to get everything out and ready at the same time.  Yes, I really am a dork. Smile

Anyway, I am officially off work until next week – can I get a hallelujah!! – so tomorrow I’ll get busy making a few things ahead of time:

  • dressing
  • sweet potatoes
  • homemade dinner rolls

I’ve been experimenting with a couple of different roll recipes and found a real winner that I’m going to share tomorrow.  Smile  In the meantime I’m going to go hang out with my wonderful husband and delightful daughter who is home for the week!

Peace, Kelly
