Cooking for two is something I have mastered. Thanksgiving dinner is out of my area of expertise...totally!
However...this year we are staying here. We usually go to my sister's but...we aren't yet ready to leave Lucy, the weather looks frightening...there is a ton of snow where my sister is...and tons of rain and perhaps ice here.
Den is taking off the rest of the week. We are going to see Catching Fire tomorrow and we will pick up Thanksgiving foods on Wednesday...everything is ordered and lists are made. Everyone has a job...lol!
I ordered pies from our fave little artisanal store...Janssen's...pumpkin praline and crispy topped apple...I have no clue why I ordered two...I am hoping I can freeze slices! I also hope they are tiny. Sweet cute tiny little pies! Cute little pies! Sweet little pies! Hmmm...this is from their FB page and it looks huge! Uh oh!
Now to the turkey...
I ordered an already cooked organic free range one. The smallest was 10 to 12 pounds and again...I have no concept of what that means. I am sure we will be shocked Wednesday when we pick it up. I only have to put it in the oven for two hours to warm it! Easy peasy! I think I can freeze some of that, too!
Den is in charge of mashed potatoes, I am making my mom's sweet potatoes,
I am still looking at stuffing recipes and Den wants either just plain corn or green beans or roasted brussel sprouts. We are thinking of making homemade rolls on Wednesday. I have to make homemade cranberries. It sounds like a lot but everything is in small amounts...except for those darn pies!
Lucy is in charge of watching Roxie and Roxie is in charge of watching Lucy!
Lol...sorry...I could not resist! They look so excited!
Still reading my cozy knitting mystery...it's very relaxing!
