Ready… Set… go!
Well now… here in the USA it’s the day before Bird-day (or Thanksgiving if you so choose).
I begin things today even though I am alone and not doing a lot of cooking. I will make a turkey and stuff it and make a big pot of gravy. ..and have a little cranberry sauce for taste.
So today I dice up the onions and celery and bag them up to sauté in the morning. I also grind up walnuts to add to my stuffing.
I add a bit extra bread to the Pepperidge Farm Herb bag. I use about 4 slices each of white bread and rye bread.. then add a touch extra spices like poultry seasoning, rosemary and thyme.
Lastly I get out the gravy pot and tray for the Turkey. ( I will hide the tin in the oven so no dust gets in it.)
This way I get up and put a tub of (non) butter in a big fry pan and sauté the onions and celery and add it to the bread crumbs and after washing the *nekkid* bird, I get ready to stuff it! Then bake and baste for 5 hrs (18lb bird) and surprise, surprise we have a turkey and stuffin’ ready to eat!
Before I go I wanted to show off my “big deal” from a Rummage Sale…
It’s a pretty (in mint condition) Lenox Santa! And like many things that I get that I like it cost a whole One Dollar! (and it’s really Lenox! woohoo! I like Lenox because it’s generally “all white” and I like white, but I rarely can afford anything made by Lenox! This was a little pressie for me I’m just sure of it!)
Ok.. so tomorrow is the day… to all those who celebrate Thanksgiving:
