Turkey Day is right around the corner, and I just can not believe that it is upon us already.  Didn't we just watch the fireworks on the 4th...  I am ready for the Turkey and all its fixing's, Stuffing, Mashed Potato's, Sweet Potato's, Corn, Cranberry Sauce, Biscuits, and of course Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream, there is also a Butter Pecan Cake hanging out in the fridge.  Yes, I think I will be ready.... I baked the cake yesterday, baking pumpkin pie today, Cleaned the turkey *had to make sure this guy was defrosted because we just picked him up Sunday* I made the stuffing and it is now sitting in a bowl waiting to stuff the bird tomorrow... YES I think I am ready, and while the Turkey is roasting tomorrow DH and I will be watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade....

What will you be doing on Thanksgiving Day... Our original plan was to go out to dinner, Hubby said I didn't need to cook, that I could take it easy this year and he would take me out.  I almost went for it, but then I remembered all the years we made the trip to our parents house for Thanksgiving and when we returned home the fridge was bare...I like the left overs, nothing better then raiding the fridge and finding all those containers with the little treasure locked inside. So I declined my day out and I AM COOKING... We will have our dinner watch the parades, and find a good holiday movie.  We always try to find A Christmas Carol to watch and if it isn't on we will pull one of our many versions to watch... I also love the Miracle on 34th street and It's a wonderful life... Classic Holiday Movies
I am still working on the Lap quilts for the nursing home, I have six just about ready and they will be delivered before Christmas, I know those will be appreciated...

My turkey day went really well, the gravy was not hot enough and I cheated on my stuffing buy using crumbled sausage and I will not do that again. The green bean casserole was the big hit. My DH brought different kind of rolls where they had to rise for about 3-5 hours but they came out good. I wish I could spend the day with you and watch you do the quilts for WOCS.
