Thanksgiving torture

That is when you can smell the pies baking, the stuffing and
the cranberry sauce ... and you can't have any until tomorrow.

Okay, so it's not really torture, but man, I could go for
turkey dinner already. Tomorrow, nance, tomorrow.

Howdy boys and girls! What Time Is It?
It's Howdy 2ni time, it's Howdy 2ni time,
let's give a rousing cheer, 'cause Howdy 2ni's here!

And a half gallon of rocky road quells any appetite.

"tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
creeps in this petty pace from day to day
to the last syllable of recorded time,
and all our yesterdays have lighted fools
the way to dusty death. out, out, brief candle!
life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
that struts and frets his hour upon the stage
and then is heard no more. it is a tale
told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
signifying nothing."

Or we could just start eating tonight...

Nah!

I got the turkeys brining. I got stock simmering. I got beer
chilling. I got big plans for tomorrow and tomorow and tomorrow,
plans that have nothing to do sound and fury.

We've started going out to dinner since my octagenarian father sold his
home. It's still a nice crowd - we are going to Kuleto's on Fisherman's
Wharf. But I really miss the cooking and excitement. I went to the grocery
store this afternoon just to get caught up in the whirl. I bought some
oysters for tonight. All is not lost :-D

I start roasting veggies and making pumpkin mousse tonight.

In years past I would be up until 2 or 3 in the morning making pies and
prepping everything for the main event. I think I kind of like this low key 2
person thing.

Oh, yes, my cake smells soooo good. I was going to be productive and
saute the onions and celery for the dressing, but I think it would
smell so good it would drive me crazy. Does anything smell better
than onions browning in butter?

James: "Oh, man, I just screwed up!"

Me: "What, love?"

Him: "I got my nose near the PIES!"

No. Well, maybe popcorn. No, I think onions win.

We have it down to a tidy routine here. We cook the pumpkin early in
the month, or the week before, and drain it. Either freeze, or fridge,
depending on when it was cooked. Mostly, the week before is cleaning.
We thaw the bird starting Friday or Saturday in the fridge, make the pie
crusts, cranberry sauce and extra turkey stock from necks and wings on
Tuesday. Wednesday, we make the pie fillings and bake the pies, I make
the rolls this day also, though sometimes I make the dough and bake the
rolls on Thursday. Any prep that can be done with veggies is done on
Wednesday as well, set the table for the next day, start on the relish
tray. Thursday, we roast the turkey, make mashed potatoes, the wild
rice dressing, and final touches on veggie dishes. Gravy is made while
the turkey rests.

Regards,
Ranee
