What’s a girl to do when she has what seems like too many quilts to get made before the end of the year — not to mention that the sewing room where she’s trying to sew looks like a pig pen?
She might bake cookies!
Or, she might search for a new recipe for acorn squash and, of course, try that new recipe, which was delicious!
And, then she might go through all her favorite recipes and come up with the menu for Thanksgiving!
My parents are coming for Thanksgiving. I guess I could’ve entitled the document “Menu for Thanksgiving” instead of “Menu for Mom & Dad”. Oh well . . it’s all the same so who cares what I called it.
When they were here for Christmas, I had the menu and all the recipes in a little red folder. I’m doing the same thing for Thanksgiving. It makes it so easy just have a little folder with all the recipes and not be looking on the internet or looking for a sheet of paper. I got out the little red folder from last Christmas because there were a couple of recipes they raved about and I’ll fix those again. I tried to find things that I can make ahead so I don’t have to spend so much time in the kitchen.
One thing I’m kinda worried about though. My grandma made the best cornbread dressing. My mom makes good cornbread dressing. Mine is kinda hit or miss. Last year my dressing turned out perfect! Mom or Dad one said it was the best dressing they’d ever had. Now . . what if this year it’s a flop? What if my dressing is just awful? I think I’d better roast a chicken and make a practice batch sometime between now and Thanksgiving.
Oh . . the pressure! 🙂
