10:00 p.m. . . the night before Thanksgiving. This is the point where I always say “I’m not doing this again!” Next year . . we’re having turkey sandwiches . . turkey from the Wal-Mart deli! Maybe even storebought bread! 🙂
I’m too tired to move. My kitchen is a wreck. I think I’m so tired I’m not even thinking straight because I’m going to show you my kitchen . . exactly as it looks at the moment.
This afternoon Chad asked for chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes for dinner. I needed mashed potatoes for my rolls tomorrow but what was I thinking? Chicken fried steak? I ended up having to mop the floor, take the stove apart and clean it . . and I don’t even like chicken fried steak, nor do I like milk gravy. I should never have done that today.
The turkey is brining overnight, pumpkin and buttermilk pies are made, cranberry sauce is made and it is so good, cherry/cranberry salad is made. Tomorrow I’ll mix up the dressings, make the green bean bundles, make the carrot souffle, make the rolls, make the gravy, inject the turkey so Vince and Chad can fry it. Hmm . . that’s more than I thought that’s left to be done!
And, I truly wonder if it’s really worth it for just the three of us. But, it’s Thanksgiving and it’s tradition to have all the Thanksgiving foods so I’m sure I’ll do it all again next year, and probably complain about it again! 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I hope you all have much to be thankful for.
