Almost Thanksgiving!

Just a couple of days until Thanksgiving! Are you ready? I'm not! LOL Well, I did bake two pies today...apple and pumpkin. Tomorrow (Wednesday) is the big cooking day...my sister Karen has contributed several recipes to my annual Thanksgiving menu, including make-ahead mashed potatoes and slow-cooker stuffing. They free up my time and oven space on Thursday! I've got a new recipe this year, butternut squash streusel, it looks yummy. I'm trying something else new this year...I'm not making a whole turkey. Besides us, we're just having two others and most of us like white meat, so I'm cooking two honey-brined turkey breasts. They're pre-brined by Wegmans. I've heard they're delicious so I have high hopes! My only concern is GRAVY. What will I use for pan drippings?

So the kids will be home tomorrow...that means I will have limited computer time, LOL. Since I'm sure we'll all be busy let me take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. I intend to look around my table and thank God for my many blessings. I am always thankful for them, but it's nice to have a whole day dedicated to acknowledging what is truly important in life.

Have a good one!
♥ Jen

  1. Have a very happy holiday! I think you are very wise to do part of the baking early!
