So I have the big 24 pound turkey soaking in a cool water bath today to thaw. So after walking the dogs today and doing bowflex, I will go out and look for pies or something to have for desert tomorrow. I have made pies before but my DH said not to bother as he says he doesn't want a lot of pie left overs. So that is a good thing. I really don't care at all about the desert. Since I got off of sugar, I don't crave it anymore so no big deal for me. I think I will also cook two of my side dishes today and have them so all I have to do is warm in the microwave. I think the yam casserole and the corn pudding will both be fine if I make them a day ahead. I am just worried about having enough oven space tomorrow with the big bird taking up the whole oven. I know we will have plenty of food. Never worried about that.
Hope all my sparks buddies that celebrate Thanksgiving are prepared for the big day.
I am giving thanks this year that we are healthy and happy even though we are going through the stress with the neighbors and the bogus law suit.
