Thanksgiving Prep

This year I am preparing the whole feast, for the first time ever. It's exciting and overwhelming all at once. We usually are with family but this year things just didn't work out that way, so we get to do our own thing which will have its advantages. So Monday Ella and I started our preparations - we made cranberry vinaigrette for the salad, and here are pics of making the orange-cranberry relish for the turkey. Yum! She enjoyed "together time" with Mom, but afterward she said "Next time I want to have little-girl together time, not Mommy together time." I guess helping in the kitchen just doesn't compare to playing Barbies!

  1. Turns out the Salmon's are doing Thanksgiving on Wednesday night now. Boo. I don't have plans of crashing your meal, but I'm hoping I'll have time to stop by in the afternoon and maybe help with Heidi and just hang out. We'll see... I can't believe you are excited about making the whole Thanksgiving meal. I wonder if that will ever happen to me. Probably not.
