Last night I was making pie crusts. The recipe I use makes three crusts. We do not need three pies! I’m going to make a pumpkin pie today and save the other two crusts. I may freeze the other two or may make a buttermilk over the weekend since I have buttermilk and that’s one of my favorite pies.
I had planned to make the cornbread last night but didn’t so I’ll get that made first thing this morning and will crumble it and put it in the oven with the temp very low and dry it out a bit since I usually make it several days before I make the dressing.
I’ll make the Watergate Salad today because I love that stuff. I made the fermented cranberry sauce already and the fermented Curtido. I will make green beans and rolls tomorrow.
Last night as I was stirring up the pie crusts, I thought back to all the years we went to my grandparents for Thanksgiving; then they came to my parents’ house for Thanksgiving. We usually either go to friends’ or have friends over so we aren’t spending Thanksgiving by ourselves but it isn’t like having a lot of family around. I miss that.
I wondered how many people were in the kitchen last night prepping for Thanksgiving, and how many more will spend the day in the kitchen today; I wonder how many will go out to eat; how many will completely ignore the holiday and have regular meals instead of a traditional meal. I suppose there’s no right or wrong way to spend Thanksgiving though I’m pretty traditional about Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
As far as meals for today, we have leftovers and we’ll have those while I’m doing what I need to do so we have a Thanksgiving feast tomorrow.
