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!

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:

And then of course I also added some of the farm photos to my flickr account.
