For the actual day of Thanksgiving we went to the SIL and BIL’s house to eat with the family. All of the kids could not join us that day as some were working, therefore; I decided to have a Thanksgiving dinner today for all of us. I am glad I took a few days to create some home-cooked food. Doing all of the dinner on Thanksgiving day would have been a pain in the arse.
I have always bought prepared food to feed the family. My motto was Let someone else do the work and I will pay them. Such a stupid motto huh? That is me lazy to the end. Well for this meal I have gone all out.
Homemade pumpkin pie, not just out of a can either. I roasted the pumpkin then made the pie.looks delicious huh? Let’s hope the son appreciates my effort, who are we kidding as long as it is edible then it will be eaten.
I usually get my cranberry sauce out of a can, let me tell you how stupid that is. I had a bag of cranberries and cooked, then smashed them all together Yummy!! I even had some on my waffle for breakfast today.
My potatoes are cooking for mashing, then it is time for the stuffing and turkey. Everything except the stuffing will be homemade. As I am no longer eating gluten and the hubs did not like any of my ideas for stuffing it will be Stove Top today.
For now I must go those potatoes will not mash themselves.
Hope this Holiday week we good to you.
