This is the point every year where I say “Next year, we’re having turkey sandwiches and potato chips!” How many of you say that?
Christmas is so easy, we usually have prime rib (but this year it will be chuck roast in the sous vide), baked potatoes, salad and rolls and something like brownies for dessert.
Thanksgiving is three or more days in the kitchen. I started on Monday making the cornbread, chopping the onions and celery for the cornbread dressing and making sure we had everything we needed for the meal. It’s been a little bit of cooking every day except today was a LOT of cooking.
Today I made a big breakfast so we would have leftover biscuits to add to the cornbread for the dressing. Then I made a pumpkin pie, which was the only pie I had planned to make til yesterday when Addie asked for a chocolate pie.
Then Addie reminded me that we were going to make a candle for her teacher for Christmas. Ughh! Right in the middle of my cooking.
Then, a friend showed the recipe for Spicy Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce and that sounded so good. I went out to the garden and rummaged around and found three jalapenos that were not ruined from the freeze and made that.
I am done for the night but probably too tired to do any stitching.
Tomorrow, I’ll get the dressing made, get the gravy made, get the sweet potato casserole made, season the turkeys and Vince will get one in the oil less fryer and Chad will fry one in his fryer. I bought rolls . . lazy Granny! 🙂
