The Weekend Before Thanksgiving

After a couple of weekends of much needed couch potatoing, this was the prep weekend. Hubby was up and out of the house at 6:30AM Saturday for his lodge meeting and I decided to just get up and move along with him. The Saturday activities were a study in ADHD housekeeping. Each task led me to another...a lot got done, but in a strange order.

Sunday? Well Sunday was all about the kitchen.

Step 1. Some stirring broadway music on the CD Player.

Step 2. Sort out the old recipe box.

Hint: In my (I mean Hubby's) kitchen, the recipes with the most wear and the smeared writing are always the best.

Step 3. Gather ingredients. (Yes that is a purple wall in my kitchen - I LOVE IT)

You can tell it's Thanksgiving when you see these ingredients in the pantry.

Step 4. Mix, simmer, bake your ass off.

For some of my favorite holiday recipes...see last year's post.
