Countdown to Thanksgiving!!


Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. How could it not be. There is something magical about Thanksgiving dinners. I absolutely love sharing meals with family and friends. Usually we spend Thanksgiving Day with friends, and the day after with family. (After a major day of shopping of course). This year it is my turn to host the turkey day, but I get a bonus. I get to do a trial run this coming Friday. Yippee! There is nothing better than coming together with loved ones to eat, drink, and be merry. Which is exactly what we will be doing.

So unfortunately for those in foodie-dom, I may have a few days of not so much actual cooking as prepping. But it will be fun, and most assuredly, there will be some form of disaster lurking around the corner for me. :-) Later today I am going to finalize my menu and make an appropriate timeline. Tomorrow I will be shopping so that I can gt my turkey brining on Thursday. Oh yes, I said brined. My "offical" turkey is one from Bon Appetit magazine. It is an herb roasted turkey with apple cider gravy. Yummers. I love that it is versatile for making ahead of time. In fact, I am trying ot get as much of the meal done beofre Friday as possible. That way I can spend Friday cleaning the house and getting out all the autumnal decorations. I can't wait. Later today after I get my timeline and shopping list down, I will come back and share a recipe or two. But until then...wish me luck!

Happy Tuesday!
