We will be having turkey. Duh, right?
I have to update you on the situation. Cowboy's mom and brother cancelled on us. She chose to spend the day with family near Waco. She did invite us but Cowboy told her that I was excited to host it at our place and we have committed to another guest and possible soldiers, too, so we had to turn her down. She was not too happy about that, but what can you do?
I'm letting that one go because it’s the holiday season and that just means all sorts of family drama. Since this is minor in my eyes, I'm letting it go.
With the two of them cancelled, I really don't see a point in preparing our own turkey. I'm buying one fully cooked and sliced. I know, I know. But I'm running an eight mile race that day and when I thought about it, it just would not work in our T-day timeline.
With the store bought turkey, I am going to make from scratch: mashed sweet potatoes with carmelized onions; green bean casserole; stuffing; cornbread; maple glazed carrots; orange-cranberry sauce and pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust.
Ta-da! Menu finalized.
Now, I just need to create our timeline, such as this and get it on.
