Wow what a nice sunny day it is here in good ol’ *hometown* USA. As soon as I got the kids to school and took my shower I made my way to the grocery store for thanksgiving groceries trip #1. Trip #2 is tomorrow because my husband has the day off and he loves Costco. (We’re getting the turkey at Costco…….)
And lest you think I was going to bring all the groceries inside the house myself:
..and yes, he did get up and do it. 🙂
So, for preparations today, I am slowly getting organized to make sure I have all the things I need for the dishes I will be preparing on Thursday.
~Disposable turkey roaster because who wants to scrub out a turkey roaster?
~Bread for stuffing.
~Poultry seasoning, of which I have plenty because it’s one of those things that I never want to run out of so I end up getting more of it than I need.
~Turkey bags to roast the turkey in.
~punch (sherbet in the freezer)….I will be putting the juice and soda on the porch to cool.
~pickles and olives (tray which used to belong to Rich’s grandmother)
~chips and dip
~I could make deviled eggs but haven’t committed yet.
~Orange jello salad (cool whip in freezer)
~crackers and cheese tray
~miscellaneous– more serving pieces
~corn casserole (sour cream and butter will be added, and eggs)
~more trays, plates, and dishes if needed
this along with the dishes that are in the kitchen (plates, bowls, and mugs)
These are the wonderful people attending our meal on Thursday, Lord willing:
Jacob-going to VT today to get Ethan, thank you J!
Mom-will be helping me in the kitchen
Maria-bringing pies, baklava, and wine
Amanda-bringing sweet potatoes, coleslaw, wine, and homemade cranberry sauce
Melissa-bringing a vegetable tray and a birthday cake
a guest invited by my sister
Now that I’m done with the groceries I am going to watch a movie, fold laundry and do some cleaning. Seth and Sarah will be home in an hour.
