Wednesday, mostly I slept. I was exhausted from Tuesday lunch and voting. It really does not matter which 8 or 14 hours during the day that I sleep except when Tommy is coming here at 9:30.
Today, I did decide what I am having for Thanksgiving. It is all traditional with nothing new.
*Some sort of poultry. A boneless turkey breast is what I am aiming for. We will see. I refuse to spend $10+ for a 3 lb. breast. Even bone-in is expensive. I might put sage on chicken breast and call it good. As a matter of fact, I will season the chicken in the crockpot tonight with salt, pepper, and sage. yum
* Cranberries. Last week, I bought two 1-lb bags of cranberries for $0.79 each! I will cook at least one of those with only a bit of sugar. NO ORANGES! I have a can of jellied Ocean Spray, too. I will have both on my plate.
*Green bean casserole. I have the beans and mushroom soup. I need the onions for the topping. At the price in the store, I might have to get a bank loan.
*Sweet potatoes. The Beauregard are so sweet, I just take them out of the skins after baking in the oven. Tommy prefers then plain like that. I absolutely detest sweet potatoes with marshmallow. But, sweet potato casserole is delicious. We like plain.
*Mashed potatoes, maybe.
*Stuffing. Home made cornbread dressing by me or from box.
*Gravy with boiled eggs in it. I have eggs.
*Field peas. We love field peas, so maybe?
I am tired already.
We do have a place where we are eating Thanksgiving Dinner. So, I might make my dinner before or afterwards. I need leftovers, lots of leftovers!
I have poultry, fresh cranberries, canned cranberries, canned pumpkin, stuffing, potatoes, and eggs.
I need to buy sweet potatoes, fried onions, field peas.
Maybe I have been too ambitious?
What is on your Thanksgiving menu? Or, are you going away?
