Lots of Dishes To Make Today

Do you have lots of side dishes to make in advance today?
Me too!
Do you have some pumpkin pies to make today?
Me too!
Do you have some bread rolls to make today?
Me too!
Do you have a table to set for tomorrow's dinner?
Me too! Actually mine's ready. Just need to grab some fresh sage to finish.
Do you have a turkey to brine and then massage with sage butter?
Me too!
Do you have a turkey gravy to prepare ahead of time ala Bobbie Flay?
Me too!
Do you have a Thanksgiving guest arriving this afternoon?
Me too!
Well, let's get off the computer and go cook!

But before you exit the keyboard go toThe Food Network to find out when you should stick the bird in the oven in relation to dinner time. They have an easy calculator there. Just type in how many pounds the turkey is, and if it is stuffed or unstuffed and presto they will tell you what time to stick the bird in the oven at 325 degrees for a nice slow roast.

Note: these pretty pottery dishes I found at the gift shop at Shenandoah National Park. Aren't they lovely. Just had to take a photo.

Joann: I think the plates are neat and will make a cool table display.

Knowing you I suspect you have most of it done already. I have never known you to run late on anything. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Yes lots of things to do....

My girls and our son are making everything except dessert!!

I made two cheescakes, two pumpkin pies, a pecan pie and a loaf of banana bread..and of course chocolate chip cookies !!

The turkey would have been easier.

Love and Hugs and have a wonderful Thanksgiving...
