What better day to start a food blog than the day before the biggest food day of the year. I love cooking for Thanksgiving though this year it feels like I am overdoing it. I am making the turkey, stuffing, gravy, and pies but it will only be for the five of us, no extra guests this year. V and I will certainly eat our fair share, but the kids, who knows. G will try everything but I have a feeling that A will take one look at the plate and decide not to eat. On the other hand, I love leftovers and can't wait to make turkey soup, turkey tetrazini and lots of turkey sandwiches. So I am sure the 16lb bird will get used up just fine.
The pies are made, the turkey is sitting in the fridge after being brined for 4 hours, and the bread for the stuffing is cut up and dried. I still have a whole list of things to do in the morning, but with no extra guests, if things get delayed or go wrong, no pressure. I'm sure everything will turn out fine.
