I’ve got Thanksgiving on the brain so I’m Thinking Out Loud about it this week.
Chester likes his 2 walks a day
Unfortunately, it’s getting very difficult to get them in as the sun dips lower and lower on the horizon.
So when I don’t have time to walk him in the afternoon, I let him out, he runs out, turns around, and runs back in. Multiple times. Even when I know he has to go. He clearly waiting for his walk.
I’m trying to keep Thanksgiving simple
But then I see a recipe and think that looks really good! I decided to do a turkey breast & legs, not an actual turkey. Turkey really isn’t my forte. This way everyone has a choice between white and dark meat and I think it will be simpler.
My husband is making stuffing from his Dad’s “recipe” (basically adding pepperoni to pepperidge farm stuff mix). I’ll roast some veggies. I’ve already made some cornbread and plan to make another batch.
For dessert there will be pumpkin brownies (brownies with a pumpkin pie-ish layer on top) and individual apple crisps. The brownie base has already been baked and frozen; the apple crisps still need to be made.
Then I saw a recipe for no bake individual cranberry cheesecakes . . . yeah, I bought some cream cheese and cranberries.
7 Years on WordPress????
Seriously, as I was working a few blog posts, I got a message from WordPress that I registered 7 years ago.
How is that possible, you ask, considering my blog is less than a year old?
It’s not my first
I have to say I was surprised!
Why couldn’t the pilgrims land in summer?
Am I the only one that thinks Thanksgiving would be easier to do in the summer?
Paper or real plates? We’re going paper. Thank you, Amazon Prime.
Turkey Trot, anyone?
Since I don’t have to travel this year, I’m giving serious consideration to finally doing a Turkey Trot.
Of course, staying cozy at home and watching the parade & dog show — finally!; we’re usually on the road by then — sounds attractive too.
Do you plan to do a turkey trot?
I’m linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for her:
