It is the Monday before Thanksgiving, that National American Holiday of pigging out and oh, yeah, something about being thankful.
I am making the pies today, pumpkin. coconut custard, and apple.
Tuesday: I get to relax.
Wednesday: I’ll make the cranberry relish, the oranges in syrup, put the green bean casserole together, and then I’ll make the stuffing.
Thursday: the morning of the feast begins. I will throw the bird in the oven to roast. I will be peeling potatoes for mashed potatoes. I’ll make the gravy. I’ll be making cornbread. I’ll throw the casseroles and stuffing in the stove to reheat. And then, we will in the immortal words of Dr.Seuss: “…we will feast, feast, feast!”
It is a lot of work, but I love it. Nothing is better than food, friends, and family! Unless it is that thing about being Thankful.
What are the reasons you are thankful? What is on your table this year?
