Today was a great day. My parents were here from Ft. Worth & my sister was here from around the corner! I decided last night that I wanted today to be relaxing, and not too scheduled. So, relaxing it was! We slept in until about 9am – amazing!! Jax actually slept too (after waking up a few times). I wanted to prep all ingredients first so I got started on that right after eating the baked french toast casserole I’d made last night. It was very yummy. I felt bad that Joey didn’t get to taste it because he had to go pick up our turkey. YES – we ordered our turkey. A fried turkey from Pearls & it was pretty good. After 4 hours of sauteeing, mixing, tasting, and baking we sat down for our Thanksgiving meal at 2:20. Not bad!! At 2:44 I was clearing off the table. Four hours cooking for 25 minutes of eating!! My poor family. I made them wait so long to eat! It was so good though. My Mom & I decided that we would not make as much food this year. Yeah Right!! We, without really realizing it, made the usual amounts of everyone’s favorite. Here are the Must Have’s at our house.
Joey – cheesy brocoli & rice casserole
Dad – green bean casserole
Mom – carrots or sweet potatoes – this year we had glazed carrots!
Stacey – hash brown casserole
Me – dressing
Jaxon – gerber sweet potatoe snacks & chicken vegetable dinner
Here’s to leftovers!!!!
Joey got the tree up and decorated, and started on the outside decorations!! Thank you sweetie!! I am looking forward to my day with my two boys tomorrow!!
