ok so today will be a LITTLE easier. only 2 cheesecakes left to do, then package and box all of them. then 2 cakes to build and decorate..one tiered one one flat birthday one. then a bazillion pie crusts...and some last minute cleaning.
Tomorrow is going to be a zoo...up way early to do pies, then deliveries, then pickups all day. make the stuffing and chill it. make cranberries and yam casserole and peel the potatos and put them in lemon water to be ready for thursday. pickups all day of pies, cakes, etc.
but my older son will be home in the evening!! he always helps me stuff the turkey and carries it. i was stupid and got a monster just because it was there. the bigger they are the drier and tougher---and you are paying for bone. i usually stay around 20 (although 16 is the recommended max) but this was sitting there and i grabbed it. 25 pounds.. its not going to fit in my roaster and i didnt have anything big enough to brine it in. oh well..why do we always think bigger is better?
