The bird is in the oven now. We will have sweet potatoes and stove top dressing ( I hear some of you saying "YUCK!"). My MIL will be making the real stuff, so I see no reason to go to all that work today. I did make my own cranberry sauce. It's incredibly easy to do. I am not making any mashed potatoes either. This is a mini Thanksgiving meal. I really only want the turkey for the leftovers.
Even though it's just me and DH, I still set a nice table early this morning.
The newly-purchased pumpkin plates worked nicely on this table.
The pumpkin plates could be a salad plate, but I am using them as a dessert plate tonight.
In fact I already have the dessert all plated up.
No pumpkin pie tonight either. Again we will have that on Thursday.
Today DH bought a Hershey chocolate Edwards pie.
I squiggled a bit of chocolate sauce on the plate, cut the pie and
I think it's just about time to carve that bird.
