I said I wasn't going to post until after I graduated, but I did FOUR independent study lessons today and decided I needed a break. So I started planning my Thanksgiving dinner. I am so excited! I am going all out, everything from scratch. Unless I change my mind. But for now it is from scratch.
Here is my menu:

  • The Turkey: I am going to brine it. It is supposed to make it juicier and more tender.
  • Mashed Potatoes: Will be so creamy and buttery
  • Stuffing: I might use the gizzards, but I cannot decide.
  • Turkey Gravy: From the actual juice in the turkey.
  • Sweet Potatoes: I won't be making these. I don't like them so my sister Charleah will do it. But I might make her do it from scratch.
  • Green Bean Casserole: Not from scratch, but the way my mom makes it. So wonderful.
  • Rolls: I haven't found the perfect recipe yet, but they will be homemade
  • Apple Pie- From real apples. And a homemade crust.
  • Pumpkin Pie- From real pumpkins. Not from a can and another homemade crust.
  • Two other pies I haven't decided on yet.
As far as I know, we will only have 5 people here eating dinner, so of course I will have tons of leftovers for Turkey Salad Sandwiches. Yum!

So Long

I know I haven't written in forever. I am planning on graduating in December and all my free time is spent doing my homework and procrastinating my homework. When I write a blog post, I want it to be good.

So, December 19 I will be done with school. Expect something great.
