Plans plans plans

You guys. I am so happy to report...I AM ALIVE!

I was starting to wonder...but seriously, today I feel better than I have in days. With the help of good ol Nyquil and Dayquil, I've made it. I've crossed the bridge. I am on the up. Perfect timing because I have a busy few days ahead of me!

Here's the plan:

Tomorrow I will make apple pie, chocolate pie, and peanut butter pie. I will also be cleaning the bathrooms and helping Clay with any of the chores he's planning on doing (vacuum and mop floors, wipe up the slobber on walls). Of course early in the day I will prepare the turkey by starting the brining process. Oh, and in case you are wondering, yes I am working tomorrow! Yikes!

Thursday morning I will pop that turkey in the oven, make two batches of rolls (there never seem to be enough in my opinion), make some sweet potatoes, clean up, set up, welcome my guests and eat and eat and eat!

I am SO excited. About all of it! I happen to love making pies. It's just such a great end product, and pie just feels like such an old fashioned thing to do...it makes me happy.

I also love making rolls. I love bread and dough and baking.

Sweet potatoes on the other hand...we'll see about that. First time for that.

I'm really really really excited for Friday to decorate for Christmas!

I am not planning on doing any shopping...unless something SCREAMS at me from the ads. But I highly doubt that will happen. I'd rather relax and watch movies and sleep and stuff.

Well, good luck to all of you on your cooking and eating festivities! I am feeling really blessed to have a double oven this week :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh man I wanna eat all your pies!!! Can you please mail one slice of each to PA for me, haha. I am actually going to make the cheesecake that was on Mel's Kitchen Cafe, do you read that blog? And probably make rolls too but I will let the in-law handle the rest. Have a fun Thanksgiving, it is so fun being the hostess, busy, but fun.

A double oven? Sweet! I'm always amazed at what you have planned and then I remember you don't have kids. The wonders of accomplishment when the little ones aren't around. I can't imagine NOT getting interrupted during something. ANYTHING. Even going pee- Scarlet runs in and wants to be with me. Don't worry about the sweet potatoes, they're just so good on their own, you can't mess them up, as long as they're tender. I'm SO GLAD we didn't come. We feel like CRAP. We might bail on our plans here, and I'm making the turkey!!! I'm wishing I didn't volunteer now, because I can't just not make the turkey. I'll have someone pick it up, but hopefully we'll have a miraculous recovery tomorrow. I can't imagine being on a plane right now. That would be AWFUL. That being said, I'm SO EXCITED to come see you!!! I keep thinking about it! It's really close! How cold is it there? Do you keep your house warm or chilly? Should we only bring sweaters?
