It's just around the corner, and the plans are starting to take shape...
It is one of my favorite holidays, as it involves large quantities of delicious comfort foods and the gathering of friends and family. And this year, Jeremiah and I are hosting some of the single soldiers at our house since they may not have anywhere to go for the holiday. I definitely think that it is a better alternative than eating at the chow hall on a holiday that is meant to celebrate friendship and coming together.
We ordered our turkey today from a local grocery store, and I am really excited to get to have a fresh turkey instead of a frozen one. It tastes so much better! Other items on the menu include:
Cranberry Orange Relish
Green Bean Casserole
Sweet Potato Casserole
Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar and Walnuts
Granny Kennedy's Turkey Stuffing
Jeremiah has also requested a selection of five kinds of pie.. although he hasn't narrowed down what kinds he would like. He is very excited about the pies :) I will probably make an apple pie and one other here at the house and then order the other three from a local bakery.
