Preparing for Thanksgiving Day
I'm prepping early so I don't tire myself out. Swollen ankles and feet are not a good look, no matter how cute my painted toenails may be. LOL! So, I sat down and wrote out a schedule of things to do each day, from Monday through Thursday so I am not overwhelmed with the cooking. The funny thing is that I'm only cooking for just my own family, but we enjoy the leftovers, so we cook a good amount.
My oldest daughter (9yrs.) is really wanting to help me cook this year and that is a HUGE help and I'm so glad. We were making cornbread ahead this afternoon for the dressing and I told her how special I felt because she wanted to help. Well, here is this year's menu:
|I use this recipe for mashed potatoes all of the time, |
but I pinned it so I could share the goodness!
|I've made this cinnamon bread before, too. YUMMY!|
|Sweet Potato Pie|
