A Thanksgiving Tradition

So of course I wound up staying up WAAAAAY to late last night and now I am paying for it. Blurg. Night always seems to last for so long and morning comes far too quickly. Now I am blogging and drinking coffee instead of finishing the last ends and bits.... *sigh* Anyway, what I have left: Roast the turkey - I am going to try a higher heat for less time. Finish the stuffing Make the Brussels sprouts Glaze the squash Take a nap Happy Thanksgiving!

Bad 70's music and a liberal sprinkling of flour

Wiiiiith you I'm not shyyyyyy, for you are a magnet and IIIIIIII yammmmmm steeeeel...... My neighbors must HATE me by now, but you know what, Thanksgiving dinner has to get cooked baby! So far: I cubed all the bread for the stuffing Parboiled & peeled the pearl onions Made 6 pie crusts Rolled out 5 pie crusts Put 2 pumpkin pies in the oven Blind baked 2 pecan pie crusts Used the scrap dough to make little mousie crackers Made the gravy base Made two liters of white sauce. What's left: Make the pecan pie filling Make the stuffing Make the Brussels sprouts Make the apple pudding pie Peel and roast the squash. Easy. And I have plenty of AWESOME-ly bad music to keep me up ALL NIGHT! Whoo hooey!

Turkey Shoot 2007

I am delighted to report that Turkey Shoot 2007 has gone off without a hitch. Sadly I keep forgetting to post about it on this blog, so here are the links: The Weekend Approaches and also The Trip to Diemand Farm And then of course I also added some of the farm photos to my flickr account.
