I have today off from work – actually the rest of the week. Yay!! I stopped and bought groceries last night after work in anticipation of Thanksgiving. Lots and lots of groceries. My son will be doing most of the cooking when he gets here on Thursday morning with a couple of friends, but today I will be baking pies and bread. And cleaning. Lots and lots of cleaning.
For the first time in quite a while we will be having a traditional Thanksgiving meal, with turkey and stuffing, mashed potaotes, green bean casserole, scalloped corn, etc. Except my son will be putting his own spin on things. He’ll be cutting the breast off the bone, tying it together and roasting it and then poaching the legs and thighs in oil – low and slow, not fried hot. A turkey confit, if you will.
My other son and his girlfriend will be spending Thanksgiving at her parents, since they were here last year. I remember having to split the holiday, but our parents lived in the same town! It was more of an afternoon at one place and the evening at the other. They will be stopping through town for a short visit on Sunday on their way back home. That’ll be nice.
So what are your plans? Traveling? Staying home? Cooking? Going out to eat? Friends and family? Volunteering?
