About That Time!!!
Well, It's after 6PM so my Pre-Thanksgiving baking is about to commence.
I do about half my baking and prep work the day before the main event. Easier that way.
Next year I'll host a big dinner again for the entire family, but it's just going to be me and Paul this year.
I just have to make the cornbread for the DRESSING (and YES- there IS a HUGE difference in Dressing and Stuffing!!!), and bake a Southern Buttermilk Pound Cake.
The rest will be done tomorrow.
It's odd- having just me and Paul...usually I spend at LEAST three days before Thanksgiving baking and prepping when we have the entire family over!! And by the entire family, I mean the kids, the grand-kids, my mom and her friend, and sometimes a couple of my siblings and a couple of their kids, and we usually have a few mis-placed people come along, too. All are usually welcome to share our bounty. But this year Paul and I are taking a break and it's going to be just he and I.
Watching the Macy's Parade while the turkey roasts, spend a leisurely afternoon cooking up the rest of the dinner while sipping on a glass of Eggnog, eating dinner, going for a short ride to look at some Christmas displays around town and finishing up the evening drinking a White Russian or two while watching a bit of TV!!!
I'm looking forward to a nice quiet day with My Love.
