T-Minus Two Days
November 26, 2008
Normally I would be elbow deep in planning side dishes, defrosting my turkey (IN THE REFRIGERATOR!), and cleaning my house. I would be worrying about the dining table centerpiece and keeping the kids occupied while I cooked.
But this year I am going to be in Chicago on Thanksgiving Day and therefore I am not going to be doing any entertaining or cooking. Go me! I probably shouldn’t be as excited as I am. But I really am looking forward to seeing the Turkey Talk-Line in action on the busiest day of the year. Sort of like being at Santa’s workshop on Christmas Eve.
My husband is planning on preparing a scaled down Thanksgiving dinner, I suppose as scaled down as a dinner for 9 people is, so that when I arrive home Thanksgiving night we can all eat together.
I am, however, elbow deep in pie baking. Only one pie thus far is for us. The one that caught on fire when Miles turned the oven to BROIL. I scraped the burned top off and it should be fine. Nothing but the best for my family! Oh, I am kidding. But after baking 14 other pies to sell, I am not about to bake another pie.
First I learned how to make a perfect turkey. Now I have turned into Betty Crocker. I hardly recognize myself.
Stay tuned for my live post from the Talk-Line on Thanksgiving Day. I am bringing my camera.
