I think I love it more than Christmas...
as a day...not as what we're actually celebrating!
Pilgrims vs. Jesus...of course Jesus wins!
maybe it's because I love being in the kitchen
I really really love and enjoy the kids in the kitchen next to me
all the family together
parents & kids
husbands & wives
grandmas & grandpas the kids grandparents not mine
that would be weird and creepy since mine have passed away
Aunts & Uncles
this is a picture of my great-grandma Roberts,
not sure if this picture was even taken at a holiday, or just her in the kitchen, but I love it!
all of us wearing our aprons (I have a small apron collection...but need more)
sleeves rolled up
all the smells...
maybe that's why my list is so long...even though I only signed up for 3 things
Pumpkin Pie are the only things I actually signed up for...
oh and the breakfast casserole...so 4 things....
my own, self imposed, list of kitchen to-do's today
*another batch of this Chex Mix
opting for MORE chocolate chips, per my Father-in-Law's comment
or was is a suggestions of, "there's just a 'hint' of chocolate chips"
*Pumpkin Pie-I just use the recipe off the back of the can of pumpkin...with homemade pie crust and more vanilla than the recipe calls for.
*French Toast Breakfast Casserole (for tomorrows breakfast)
*stuffing prep for the stuffing in the morning...chopping, slicing, sautéing (yep, that's a real word, I checked wikipedia), ...still trying to decide if I will make 2 types of stuffing...I really, really, really don't enjoy stuffing, but I really want to...so I have found a recipe with artichoke hearts & spinach....we'll see!
and Beau's not off the hook either,
here's his list
*Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies
oh, happy day for me...
Happy Thanksgiving Eve to all, and to all a Good Day!
