It is so hard to believe that next week is Thanksgiving already. I am looking forward to the day off with my family, and enjoying some great food. Once Thanksgiving is over, then my crazy time begins. I work in a bookstore, and Black Friday starts of my Christmas holiday season. This year seems so much more hectic because Thanksgiving is a week later this year, and everyone seems to be in a bigger hurry to get things ready for the holiday season. Take me, for example, I already put my outside Christmas decorations up. I don’t have them turned on(at least not at the time of this post, he he)yet, but they are at least up. It was a really warm day yesterday, so I figured, why not. At least I didn’t freeze my rear off putting them up. I am sure taking them down will be a whole different story.
Anyway, back to Thanksgiving. I thought I’d give a quick rundown of all the yummies that we will be eating this year. I don’t have recipes yet, or pictures, but I plan to remedy that this year. I am usually so worried about eating and getting to bed early because I have to get up early the next morning, that I don’t enjoy the day to its fullest. This year will be different. I figure, it will be worth pounding an extra cup of coffee(or three)to spend more time relaxing with hubby instead of indulging myself with sleep. So, here are some of the delicious things we will be eating this year:
- Roast chicken and turkey
- Salad with bacon dressing
- Bread Filling
- Homemade cheese sauce(I don’t use the cayenne pepper)
- Cranberry sauce
- Grands biscuits(Yum, one of my favorites)
Desserts usually include:
- Pumpkin pie, of course. My MIL makes one with spice and one without. I like mine with, but Pap likes his without.
- Apple pie made by me(pictures and recipe will be posted on a later date)
- Cheesecake with cherry or blueberry topping
- Possibly a lemon meringue pie, but not sure yet
So, these are some of the things on our Thanksgiving day menu. What kind of foods do you enjoy? Do you cook? Go out? I’d love to hear about your Thanksgiving traditions.
