ok 3 posts in 30 minutes..

I am at work....

I dont normally work Saturdays at all...but my boss is out of town...and someone needed to be hear with the sales team to answer the phones and all that jazz...

I AM so enjoying my laptop...Last night for the first time since I got it....I laid in my bed with my blue quilt and played on my puter...and read blogs.. :) LOVE IT!

I will be going home @ 3 and when I get there I have quite a few things to do...I need to start putting out some of my Christmas decorations :) and yes I know that we arent even thru iwth Thanksgiving BUT I LOVE Christmas!!! LOVE IT!!! and my stuff will stay up all the way thru New Years Day :)

I also need to try to figure out the rest of my Tgiving menu...as the family is coming to our house again this year :)

I ahve my turkeys and I need to clean out the second fridge in my garage so I can use it to put the stuff in it that I make in advance :)

We will be having turkey and cornbread dressing, yam yumms, creamed corn casserole, grean bean casserole, baked winter squash, pea salad, pasta salad, a ham for my daddy cause he does not eat turkey, pinto beans, potato salad, au gratin potatos, and then the pies, - pumpkin, chocolate, cherry, coconut cream, pecan and maybe a sweet potato pie...Wayne loves mincemeat pie but I have never made it...I might try this year..There will also be some fresh veggies cause some dont care much for casseroles so that will be green beans, corn, TURNIPS(have to have turnips for me and my brother), bacon wrapped asparagus......there will be TONS of food...

What is on your menu for Thanksgiving?

  2. Holy cow! That is A LOT of food. Do you make it ALL yourself?

    Geesh, girl. Can I come to your house for T-giving? Sounds like you'll have plenty. LOL

    We usually do a turkey and a ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, noodles, corn casserole, homemade hot rolls, and for dessert, pumpkin, mince meat, and strawberry rhubarb pies. Plus, people usually bring cookies and peanut brittle too.

    It'll be yummy. :)

  3. I'm going to a friends home this year, but I have a turkey so I'm making the turkey, gravy, stuffing, home made noodles, and a chocolate pie. She'll be making the rest! Mashed potatoes, brocolli casserole, pumpkin pie, rolls, and a few other things that I'm drawing a blank on right now.
