Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

dd left before 4 am...freezing rain overnight and she was worried she wouldn't make her shift and didn't want to have to drive faster than she was comfortable.  I STRESSED. Woke up at 4 and tracked her progress until she got to work.

Dh went snowboarding and then came home to help with the prep cooking.

So tomorrow's menu: 

starter: meats, cheeses, crackers, stuffed dates and marinated mozzarella balls

the big bird!!!

mashed potatoes

sausage stuffing

a squash rice casserole thing....really good, tried it a couple weeks's got squash, brown rice, black rice, cranberries, parm cheese and walnuts with fresh thyme.

green bean casserole....I make mine with velveeta and carmelized crispy onions.

gravy, of course.

and for dessert this year....the PIECAKEN.  

Did the hour long Thursday ROMWOD and took the dog for a long walk.  I'm on load number 3 of laundry....doing dd's, which she never got to, cause I'm a sap.

And finished another pair of scrubs.

Now I think dh and I will watch a movie.

Dinner tonight....chourico, peppers, carmelized onion and cojita quiche!  It's all prepped and just needs to go in....

So....prep cooking wasn't bad.  Everything but the bird is ready for it's appointed time slot.
