DAY 26: THANKSGIVING PREP DAY!

November 26, 2014 at 12:06 PM 1 comment

CAMEOS of thanksgiving foods

Today’s the big day…before the BIG DAY…

Tomorrow in kitchens all over the nation, seasoned (and not-so-seasoned) cooks are braving the oven, stove, roaster, and the deep fryer to prepare the feast of all feasts for Thanksgiving day — and of course the microwave! (to keep everything piping hot til the very last item is ready)

But in truth, TODAY is the day that actually makes or breaks Thanksgiving dinner…

For today is the day of cakes, pies, jello molds, and a thousand other desserts and side dishes — the gooey heart and soul of Thanksgiving that fills in the gaps between the time-honored staples of turkey and dressing.

In fact, one of the easiest ways to tell a veteran from a rookie Thanksgiving cook is that veterans get started today, while the rookies (God rest their souls…) try to squeeze it all in tomorrow!

So as I toddle off to make mom’s famous jello salad and pumpkin pie, I wish my fellow cooks a wonderful day of food prep, flour-covered foreheads, and sampling. (oh yes…the sampling..mmmm!)

To the veterans I say… GO GET ‘EM!

And to the rookies I say… GET STARTED!

    Well you know your Mom’s a veteran and I am thankful to pretend to help so I can be on hand to sample. I just finished sampling the best pumpkin pie ever…in fact to be absolutely sure it was the best I had to sample two pieces. Yep…it is the best. Can’t wait until tomorrow to “sample” the rest.
