Ok, let’s be honest. There’s no way I’d ever have a show on tv. Talking in front of people….even if they are people I can’t see makes my palms sweat just thinking about it. I had to take a speech class in college and I waited until the last semester and then I took the night class because it had fewer people in it. I did ok, but on the inside I felt like every speech came out like this:
Let me clarify this. Why do I love blogging? That goes without even being said. Let me clarify this. I can talk and share my ideas without opening my mouth. It is glorious.
So this cooking show. I am making quite a few dishes for thanksgiving. It is just my family and my parents this year and so I don’t need to make a lot of anything, but we still have a lot of traditional dishes that everyone wants. When it is all said and done we might have to find our thanksgiving pants.
Here is a break-down of our menu:
- turkey and gravy – mom
- mashed potatoes – me
- sweet potato casserole – mom
- corn pudding – me
- green bean casserole (my husband requested that I not make this fancy in any way, shape, or form) – me
- deviled eggs – mom
- carrots and celery – mom
- sweet potato biscuits – me
- pumpkin pie – me
- pecan tassies – me
Are you hungry, yet? Don’t worry–it is only a day away!
I am going to try to get most of my dishes done today. Because of that, I am going to make PW’s mashed potatoes (and who am I kidding? also because her stuff is So delicious!) and her pumpkin pie (the recipe is in her holiday cookbook). I will be able to make the biscuits and pecan tassies today, too. So tomorrow I just have to throw together the corn pudding and green bean casserole and stick them in the oven along with the mashed potatoes. It is all about having a game plan, people!
I will be hanging out with these guys today so that tomorrow I can have a wonderfully relaxing day.
What does your thanksgiving menu look like? I haven’t made sweet potato biscuits before so I’m most excited to try them. And I love corn pudding. What food do you look forward to eating at thanksgiving? Don’t tell me you’re like Chandler and you eat chicken.
