Happy Thanksgiving!

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I think I am! I’ve spent all day baking, chopping, mixing, tasting and rolling! My back is killing me and my feet are on fire but it will all be worth it when we sit down together with loved ones tomorrow and enjoy the feast!

Pie made it home from an early school day in time to help cut out the leaves and pumpkins for the pie decorations. I know, the cheesecake is cracked right down the center but I’ll cover it up with a can of extra cherry cherry pie filling, yum! No one will know he difference. I forgot to put the 2 Tbs of melted butter into the pecan pie so I’m hoping it still turns out, it looks good! The french silk pie will get a heaping cloud of sweetened whipped cream and a sprinkle of shaved chocolate right before serving.

I’ve got my turkey rinsed and rubbed delicious smelling olive oil, rosemary, thyme and garlic in between the skin and breast! All I have to do in the morning is saute my chopped onions and celery in butter, mix up the stuffing and stuff the bird. I think I’m going to try roasting it in one of those Oven Bags, I’m not sure yet though, I’ve never tried it that way before. We’ll see how I feel about t in the morning! I was going to buy dried stuffing cubes but they were so much more than I was willing to pay. Instead we bought several loaves of white and wheat bread for .69 each. I dried them in the oven and then cut them into cubes myself. I bet they’ll taste better than those dried out bagged ones anyway!

That’s what I’ll be up to tomorrow! My Mom & Lee, Step-sis & her family are coming over. We’re having a small Thanksgiving this year, it will be nice to visit and relax. I am so thankful for this wonderful family of mine! I’m thankful for all of you awesome readers too! Whatever your plans I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ll be back sometime this weekend if I survive my Pie coma!
