What would I do without a blog? Waste a lot of paper?
Gotta figure out what exactly what I need to do today, and make a timeline for what I need to do tomorrow. So that’s what this blogy will be about…..
My house is clean except for the mess I made working on Liesl’s Christmas present last night (which I realized I need to hurry up and finish and mail), but that should be easy to clean up.
Tonight, I need to
Make yeast rolls for tomorrow (get started on this asap)
Prep sweet potatoes (peel, cube, boil, mash – everything except streusel, which I might mix tonight)
Prep mashed potatoes (peel, cube, boil, mash – although I’ll add seasoning etc tomorrow) (actually might no mash these)
Make the pie in the morning – also whipped cream, and sugared cranberries
*Don’t forget to let turkey come to room temp before cooking
*Also make turkey stock
Start turkey….um, around 1pm (about 3 hours cook time, 45 minutes rest)
Gravy, of course
Bake sweet potato casserole
Saute onions, prep mashed potatoes, and bake when sweet potatoes are done
Bake rolls around 4pm
I feel like I’m missing something, but I’m hoping that’s because I’m not worrying about stuffing or greens. Hm. Although some of this might change if the stuffing/greens end up needing to be cooked at my house. Which would be totally fine of course.
I did not want to get out of bed this morning. I know I know, that’s the most normal thing ever. But still. I just finished a cup of coffee which was mediocre and has not made me feel any more alert than I was already. Bah. Also my throat is very vaguely sore, which probably is from drainage as I forgot to take an antihistamine yesterday. At least I hope that’s what it’s from!!
