Making Thanksgiving Preparations

I've been getting the house together for Thanksgiving. Actually I'm doing a little preparation for Christmas too. I'm working on rebuilding an old wreath. I'll try to post some pictures as I make some progress.

For Thanksgiving dinner we'll be frying our turkey.

I've got the turkey thawing already. So, I won't be reporting any frying disasters afterward. Really, if you use a little common sense and follow certain safety precautions, all will be fine.

I'm making a lot of the usual sides: stuffing, mashed potatoes (sweet and white), cranberries, and gravy. Grandma's bringing green bean casserole and wild rice. I'll be making a pumpkin cheese cake and a ton of appetizers to boot. We always have enough leftovers to feed the family over and over again.

This weekend we'll get the house decorated and the Christmas tree up. I want to try doing some Christmas shopping too, but I doubt I'll get to it.

I need to make updates across the board online for the holidays...So much to do, so little time. My Me page is done. I bypassed doing Thanksgiving themes. I don't know if I can decorate the blog because of all the additions I've done this year. We'll see.

  1. There haven't been any "fryer catastrophes" in my area for the last couple of Thanksgivings, Muse. There used to several every year, especially when the fryers first came out--learning curve going on!

  2. My poor wife got stuck with all the prep this year. I normally do the entire Thanksgiving dinner, so she's a bit out of practice.

  3. Hi Conda!

    Learning curve is right. We learned something this year: Buy extra peanut oil.

    All came out fine in the end, we just adjusted the turkey some. It was yummy as ever.

  4. Muse:

    Your Thanksgiving dinner sounds scrumboshious! We had a great dinner in Las Vegas. It was a huge buffet. I know it's not like home cooked, but we are finally too tired to do it all ourselves, and then there's the clean up. Too much.

    I trust your day of thanks went well.

    Happy trails

  5. Muse:

    Where have you been lately. I miss your posts.

    Happy trails.

  6. Hey Swu!

    I'm around...I've been doing Region band things with the teen, holiday preparations, and a lot of contest stuff at SR.
