And the craziness is about to start!
Luckily, we have a separate electric oven for the turkey, so it’ll free up some room in the oven for other things, although, now that I think about it, there’s not too much we actually need to make in the oven. It’s the stove top that will be a-bubbling all day long!
The sweet potato casserole and the buttery sage crescent rolls are the only things I can think of, atually. Oh, and the pie. But that’ll be made tonight. Hm…can I make the dough for the rolls tonight and let it rise overnight? Or is that something that can only be done the day of? There’s so much I don’t know about baking.
We’ve already cubed up the squashes for the soup, and tonight I’ll make the cranberry sauce as well. The carrots, brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes will all be done on the stovetop tomorrow. And the salad will be just about the last thing I do. And really, that’s it. Doesn’t sound that complicated. We can do this!!
We have one more person coming than the number of place settings for our fancy china – too bad. So I will break out the Fiestaware and have a colorful Thanksgiving instead of overly fancy. It would have been nice to finally use it, but we will, one day!
Tonight I have to run to the store and get a replace Pur water filter for our faucet – of course ours is “used up” RIGHT before T-day!
Wish us luck that we pull off hosting our first Thanksgiving ever. 🙂
Any big plans for Thanksgiving? Anything you’re really excited about cooking?
