I do not have my granddaughter this morning, so I have oodles of free time to get ready for tomorrow. I have sweet potatoes (which were free from a friend's garden!) in the oven. I will turn them into a casserole. I have several other dishes to put together which shouldn't take too much time.
I am not hosting dinner this year, so I am not in charge of the big bird. HOWEVER, I was at Food Lion this week picking up a few things and saw that if you spend $35 you can buy a frozen turkey for 27 cents a pound. I also had a $1 coupon for turkey in my bag. I walked out with a 14-pound turkey for $2.78. SCORE!!! I tossed it in the freezer for future use.
This is turning out to be the best, low-stress Thanksgiving I've had in forever. I usually end up having a huge crowd here. And while everyone brings dishes, the house has to be cleaned, table set and all that jazz. It's such a nice reprieve to just do my baking and show up somewhere else. All my children will be there, which doesn't always happen, so I'm a happy mama.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
