Thanksgiving Preparations Roll On…

thanksgiving cook booksEvery year I say I’m going to be more organized for Thanksgiving and every year, it sneaks up on me and I find myself struggling to keep it all together. Yesterday I finished grocery shopping, only to realize we didn’t have any turkey bags leftover from last year. So I had to make an early-morning run to the Jewel today. (Thankfully I beat the crowds and qualified for the express check-out!)

Today, I’m cleaning the apartment and having an internal debate–should I clean the oven now, or after Thanksgiving? (It’s really bad…many a frozen pizza disaster rests on the bottom of the oven.)

Our menu is going to be pretty much the same as last year: turkey, this Giada stuffing, Kathy’s grandma’s cranberries, mashed potatoes & gravy, maybe these carrots, a salad and whatever dessert my mom is bringing. I can’t wait!

In the meantime, I’m secretly hoping Naoto carves the turkey like a ninja:Foxtrot Comic 11-23-14

      Jess, you HAVE to make the stuffing! It’s so good. I’m not a fan of the texture of chestnuts so Naoto leaves them off 1/2 of the dish for my mom & I, but the cheese and pancetta MAKE this dish!

    I made a delicious corn chowder to be shared with the family… I know I’m looking forward to tonight. Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving!
