Bored on a Sunday
Ryan and I are totally an old married couple. There's never any discussion about who does what job. This is how it goes:
A: tape edges
A: cut in
R: move stuff around
A: fix places where tape failed
R: refresh beer and change music
Well-oiled machine I tell you!
So thanks for all the messages you guys sent about the turkey. We decided we're now doing 2 small turkeys. We're smoking one and roasting one. We're also making: mashed spuds (red w/ ranch, milk and butter), stuffing (whole grain with celery and sautéed mushrooms) , gravy, creamed spinach (my mom's recipe and my fave part of Thanksgiving!) with homemade croutons, cranberry sauce, and TWO desserts. I'm cooking for all boys so of COURSE we have to have two desserts. Pumpkin crunch cake and pecan pie cookies. Mmmmm. I'm also making a few appetizers. Think anyone's going to leave hungry?
Anyone else cooking Thanksgiving for the first time? Anyone else displaced for Thanksgiving?
