All of the grocery shopping is done.
The dough for the pie crust is made and wrapped and chilling in the refrigerator.
The turkey is thawed and waiting in the refrigerator as well.
Tomorrow I will…
make the dinner rolls,
finish the pies, (pumpkin, pecan and chocolate),
assemble the green bean casserole
and the yam casserole, (I’ve got to share that recipe with you…divine!),
make the dressing,
make a yummy, buttery concoction of butter, onion, celery, and fresh sage and stuff it under the skin of the turkey and put it in the roasting pan so it’s all ready to pop in the oven on Thanksgiving morning,
make sure the tablecloth is ironed,
and straighten up the house one last time.
We’ll end the day by picking up youngest daughter at the airport.
Since the goodies aren’t made and the table’s not set I have nothing to show you
another little thrift store wooden caddy that I found a while back
made of heavy 1980’s style oak.
I “antiqued” it up
by dry brushing on some flat white paint,
sanding it to distress it in spots,
then waxing it up with brown shoe polish,
(the kind in the tin)!
The Saturday after Thanksgiving I’ll deck the house for Christmas.
I have some cute plans for this little guy!
