- Thanksgiving Odds and Ends
- December 1st, 2008
I took off early on Wednesday to start cooking for Thanksgiving. I was trying to make and prepare for two Thanksgiving meals in one day. I think that I almost injured myself, but it came out a huge success. Many times I have a problem with procrastination. I seem to find it difficult to move forward and put my all in. Well, I put my all in for Thanksgiving. It came out great! I was so exhausted after. Thank God for M. He helped so much. For my parents, I made a turkey, homemade stuffing, black beans, rice, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, ratatouille, and pumpkin pie. I was trying to find a pie pumpkin to make the pie from scratch, but I wasn't able to find one. I guess too many people rely on the canned. I ended up making the stuffing from bread that I had at home. I wasn't able to find a stuffing in the store that wasn't hydrogenated. This made me so angry that I made it up myself. Can I say huge success. M, who doesn't normally like something not covered in meat, loved the stuffing. So, did the whole family. My BF, N, said that my cooking has improved from very good to excellent. She has known me for over 20 years! For M's family, I made lamb, homemade stuffing, black beans, rice, sweet potato casserole, green been casserole, ratatouille, and pumpkin pie. So, I cooked on Wednesday for my family and prepared for M's family. On Thursday, I finished cooking for M's family. M also made a fried turkey for Thanksgiving. Since I try to avoid meat, I didn't eat any of his turkey or the lamb. I did have a slice or two of mine. (It was good.) All in all, awesome experience.
