I do enjoy thanksgiving but theres the down side of it.....
i dont have complete days to spend in the kitchen because i am a hairdresser so i have to work and cook at the same time!!!
i started cooking on tuesday after i went to work or got off from work....the devil tried to throw me a fast ball but i was on my A game and he lost! Yeah me!!
my sister had been telling me about this pre thanksgiving party she told me i was going to which meant she had already bought the tickets......so i didnt have a choice i could'nt let her waster her money so......
i went to work that morning i got off around 12 came home took a nap woke up...cooked my ham & candied yams & cleaned a seasoned my turkey to go in the oven while i was out....then touched up my sisters hair.....showered (while things were in the oven) put on my make up...put marshmellows on top of my yams...gave my 16 old son some directions before i left...and out the door i went to the party!!!
I called back to remind him but he cut me off telling me he had already did what i had told him to do so since the oven was free....i told him to put Bill in the oven (my 12 yr old son gave him a name while he cleaned and seasoned him....YeS he was in charge of the turkey and it was great he did an excellent job) on 225 and he cooked until the next morning!
CAN YOU SAY DID I MULTITASK THIS WEEK OR WHAT!
i got home around 4am i had a ball at the party it was worth it...BUT CAN YOU SAY SLEEPY AS HELL!!!!!!!
i checked the turkey...and off to LA la la land i went!!!!!
i woke up about 8 took the turkey out he smelled and of course we sampled him...LOL!....NOT FINISH COOKING YET!!!
I still had to make the corn pudding and mac & cheese.....i finished that..my boys friend the chicken...my company called and said they were not coming I WAS GLAD!!!...i told my kids they could eat when ever... i wasnt hungry!!!
my daughter said grace thank God for everything evryone he had placed in our lives....i laughed and joked with them while they ate.....i had already prepared my food so all they had to do was put it in the fridge..nothing fancy this year sorry had to microwave it (last year we had chaffing pans )!!!!
I WENT TO BED!!!!
When i woke up my 4 babies were on the floor piled up on each other some kind of way sleep...bought tears to my eyes my babies are growing up but mad me think what will they do when they get grown there so used to being around each other all the time!!!
That was my thankful to have my family thankful for rest!!!
