Yesterday I started getting ready for Thanksgiving. This year we’ll be having dinner on Thanksgiving day with my family and we’ll be having a Thanksgiving dinner with our friends this evening. For my family Thanksgiving I’ll be making: the turkey, stuffing, rolls, sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce. I’ll be making the same, minus the turkey for our gathering with friends.
I started making the bread for the stuffing yesterday. I usually save dry bread for a month or so, but we haven’t had any leftover bread recently, so I had to make some. I’ll use part of a sourdough loaf I had in the cupboard and I’m making some 100% whole grain and some wheat bread as well for this. I’ll use sage and celery from the garden and onions from the local farmer’s market for the stuffing. I also made several batches of rolls for a Christmas dinner my sister’s church is hosting for the local children’s home.
I also have to start making food for Mr Chiots to take hunting. I’m planning on making up a few big batches of stew and a few loaves of bread. I’m also making him some carrot oatmeal cookies to carry in his pockets for quick snacks while sitting in his deer stand.
Of course tomorrow my day will be filled with cooking the turkey, making gravy, rolls, and eating all this wonderful food.
