Since we had dinner at the Meyers' yesterday, and since Amy was with her dad and stepmom for Thanksgiving, we are having our Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. I have made the stuffing and the cream of mushroom soup for green bean casserole (SO much better when it's homemade soup!), and the turkey is brining. I have leftover sweet potato casserole from yesterday in the fridge, and since I'm pretty much the only one who eats it that will be enough. My bird is a mere 14 pounds this year, what with it being just the three of us. I'll make buttermilk rolls tomorrow, and finish the green bean casserole. The mashed potatoes will have sour cream and horseradish in them as they are yummy that way. |
After dinner, we'll finally go see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. Our movie watching is way behind this year.
So, all in all, I predict a very nice Saturday!
So you get TWo Thanksgivings; nice! We do a small bird,too, since there is only three of us (all the kids but one are scattered around the country). We had a death in Hubby's family, so it was a sad occasion.
I heard. I am so sorry about that.
Hey, I'm having my Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow, too! Glad I'm not the only one :)
My turkey is also 14 pounds :D But it's going to be for, like, 14 people, I hope it's enough!

I'm a Saturday celebrator, too. Just finished getting the "stuffing" in the crock pot (eliminates the inside-the-cavity problems, but doesn't require oven space), and the (already brined) turkey is working its way toward the oven.
I'm going to see if we have any horseradish for the mashed potatoes; thanks for the idea. If not, then maybe next time.
Edit: Or not. Horseradish was soundly vetoed, so I guess I'll try it on my own sometime.

Oh, man, they really missed out.
I never thought of adding horseradish to mashed potatoes...that sounds yummy.
