Gosh, I didn't realize it was so long since I was here. You can send me all the wet noodle lashes I deserve. It's mostly due to laziness but there were some busy times too. So let me fill you in on what I've been up too.
Thanksgiving, of course, was looking to be a disaster. I took the turkey out on Mon. and put it in the frig. to thaw. Son gets one from his work and I never bothered to look at how big it was. Well when the guys came home Wed. Jared stated it was only 11 lbs. Imagine the panic with almost 20 people. Sent Jack right to the store for another, which was promptly put in water to thaw. The sweet potatoes I got were (though the smallest I could find) were huge, so I baked them Wed. and removed the insides and reheated and mashed. Thursday morning I made the pies early and peeled and cut the potatoes, then we proceeded to get the turkey's ready. One in the oven and one in a roaster. For some silly reason when we put the timer on I was thinking that was the time they would be done. DUH! Not to mention that the temp for the pies was 425 and forgot to turn it down. Well needless to say there was quick calls informing everyone dinner would be much earlier. Fortunately, all turned out well and the day was great fun.
