The Eve of Thanksgiving...

So today is probably one of the only days where I purposefully choose not to cook. We had leftovers for lunch (to clear out the frig) and I have a frozen pizza stashed for tonight. Why even try to attempt to cook today when tomorrow is the cooking marathon we've all been talking (and maybe dreaming) about for weeks?

I am making some cinnamon rolls tonight so they can rise in the frig for tomorrow morning, and pulled everything that needs an overnight thaw out of the freezer (whipping topping, homemade turkey broth, turkey gravy from a few weeks ago).

Our Thanksgiving Menu:
Grilled New York Strip Steaks
Stuffing with celery, onion & apple
Green Bean Casserole
Mashed Potatoes (maybe)
Turkey Gravy
Strawberry Pretzel Salad
Oreo Pudding Salad

The nicest thing about it just being our family is that we can eat what we really want to eat, and don't have to make things neither of us is that excited for. Hence, my husband's request for the two salads and the lacking of any sort of pumpkin pie!

I'm also thinking about attempting homemade french fried onions for the green bean casserole. I forgot to buy a can of the French's, and I refuse to even try driving into a grocery store parking lot! They don't look that hard, and it will still be green bean casserole even if they don't turn out!

Enjoy the big day tomorrow!
