Happy Thanksgiving!

My mom sent this to me in an email.  hehe!

I already know a few things I'm going to do differently next year:

1.  Chop the celery and onions for the stuffing/dressing in advance and freeze them.
2.  Plan menus for the three days before Thanksgiving to be easy and minimal mess with NO leftovers to crowd the fridge. 
3.  Have a clean house before the day before Thanksgiving-- especially the kitchen. 
4.  Have enough freezer containers for the leftover turkey to be used throughout the next couple months.  (I probably do if I can find all the lids.)
5.  Plan kid activities for the day before Thanksgiving if hubby is going to be working all day. 

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!  Wish I were home (with parents and siblings).  *sigh*

I'm all for easy, leftover-free meals before Thanksgiving. We had frozen pizzas last night and tonight we went out for my belated birthday and had restaurant pizza.

We are having a super simple Thanksgiving this year because we are invited over to Roger's home. To be honest, I already miss going to Mom & Dad's home or having more of a special feeling that we'd get doing it at our own home. But it is easier than making the whole meal ourselves.

The downside is that we won't have yummy turkey, stuffing, or potato leftovers here because we are assigned the veggie tray, rolls, and acini de pepe salad (frog eye salad) and a pecan pie. I do have 2 turkeys in my freezer though that we can cook up next month though

Um, have I missed the part where the twins actually have names? :)

Email me at FrozenWonderland(at)yahoo(dot)com and I'll tell you their real names since I know you in real life and trust you won't steal their identities. lol
