I have been busy getting ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow. It is so nice being home so much with Davin right now. I can spend some time baking and doing things that I don't always have time for. I have been working on my menu for tomorrow and my Dad and I have spent time out shopping for all of our ingredients. We are having....
24 lb. turkey
stuffing (a combination of my mom's recipe and my mother-in-law's recipe)
yummy salad (jello kind of salad)
applesauce (I made it for the first time today!)
Having a turkey dinner is not one of my favorite meals, but I have always loved preparing everything with my Mom. She and my Dad have almost always come to our house for Thanksgiving even when we lived far away from them. I believe the first time they came was in 1989. Alan had just come home from a Med-cruise. He was in the Navy and had been gone for 6 months. We had two little girls (4 and 2) at the time. My parents drove down to Virginia to spend Thanksgiving with us and we had a wonderful time making all of the food together. Nice memories.
What are you having for dinner tomorrow?? Do you have the same thing ever year or do you switch things up??
