I have so much to be thankful for in my life...I have a wonderful, caring husband, two great sons, a DIL I adore, a fabulous loving family, good health and so much more.
We are hosting Thanksgiving today...there will be about 10 people for dinner...with our son and DIL stopping in later for dessert as well as a few others for dessert. I love a houseful of people...and now that we added on to the house we finally have the room for it...our house is still tiny...but I love our little cottage.
We planned dinner so that most of it was done early and we could enjoy our family and friends and not spend the whole day in the kitchen. Yesterday I made the stuffing, mashed potatoes and a sweet potato casserole. It is misty and foggy outside. My hubby had to put up a canopy over the patio so he could set up the smoker. It is supposed to be sunny and 58 today...we'll see.
Now the turkey is in the oven, a turkey breast is in the smoker...and all I need to do is vacuum and touch up the bathroom. Then it will be a shower and then I can settle in with some Christmas gift knitting until people start showing up. The rest of the meal is easy to finish because I worked my butt off yesterday.
