Preparing for turkey day and such…
Over the weekend we finally found a turkey that was not injected with hormones and various preservative solutions. Can you believe that nobody sells turkeys locally here? We looked high and low for one and were sorely disappointed! Then we figure we would settle for one that was at least hormone/ solution free.
The kitchen is fully stocked for turkey day madness and N will even have the day off. The last several turkey days have meant that we ate dinner at about midnight after N came home from working all day. I cooked all freaking day by myself too.
With the pregnancy I am not sure I’ll be able to manage cooking all by myself this year. Now that N has the day off we’ll to be able to spend the whole day together, cook together and eat at a reasonable time. Woho!
Do you typically prepare the same Thanksgiving feast every year or do the menu items change every time? I am planning to prepare my usual feast and was starting to wonder if having the same goodness every year is bad. I mean it all rocks and is something I look forward to each year but should I change it up from time to time or is tradition best? How does everyone else work the turkey day menu?
For thanksgiving we normally have a herb crusted turkey with N’s yummy cranberry glaze. I make a huge green bean casserole, sweet potatoes smothered in marshmallow, stuffing and a yummy pumpkin maple cheesecake.
What are you planning to make for turkey day and do you like to change things up from year to year?
Oh and guess who managed to botch balancing the bank account again this pay period. Remember last time when I forgot to pay the rent? Yep, I am an attentive one these days!
Well this time I once again got all carried away paying every bill in sight and I didn’t monitor the account from the time of bill paying to now… All the dang unessential charges are going to overdraft us, boo!
We used to have a separate account for bills, that way all the money for bills went in one place and the left over money was there for whatever else…Now that we only have one account I am F-ing it all up by not keeping up with the slew of nonessential charges. Good times.
