Another One of Those Busy Weeks
Mr. T has been taking vacation days (use 'em or lose 'em)...meaning, he hasn't been traveling...but still working from home this past week. We've spent our time trying to knock out the rest of the mountain of boxes residing in our garage...what a chore! Some of these boxes have just been re-packed/re-labeled and moved three or more times...I don't think we've touched them since we were in Georgia. We're in the middle of the unpacking and organizing, but have called a halt to that work in order to get ready for Thanksgiving festivities.
So...we are working our way through the Thanksgiving To Do List. I've polished the silver and set the table for six. Made the 3-Bean Casserole and the Sweet Potato Casserole, the cheesecake and the pecan pie; baked the cornbread and chopped the veggies for the dressing. N/M/E and Missy M have gone to the Honey-Baked Ham store for the ham, which will be scored and glazed later...and tonight we'll begin the brining process for the 19# turkey that's resting in the fridge. The Riesling is chilling...and the roll recipe is on the counter. I'll make the tea that morning, mash the potatoes, cook the rice and steam the broccoli . Gravy comes after the bird is cooked for 4 hours. Relish tray with grapes, olives, celery, and N/M/E's pickles. Did I forget anything? Oh yeah...the cranberry sauce...don't forget the cranberry sauce! (Two kinds...the one with the whole berries and the one without...as we have different tastes to accommodate.) I'm getting hungry just thinking about it all!
It's going to be a great day on Thursday! Gobble, gobble!!
