Yes, here we are, the last week of November. How in the world have we gotten this far in such a short time? At least it seems to me like this year has been shorter than usual. Time really does fly as you get older, I guess.
Of course, this week is Thanksgiving, so a lot of my time will be spent preparing for that. The turkey is already taken care of - a friend smoked ours in his big smoker. Ahhhh, it's going to be delicious!
I'm making my homemade mac and cheese with pepper jack, sausage stuffing and some cranberry sauce. Friends who are celebrating the holiday with us will be fixing other sides and desserts. It's going to be so much fun!
We will also spend some reflecting on what we have to be thankful for. We are so blessed, aren't we? We have a roof over our heads, food on the table for every meal, and countless other luxuries the rest of the world goes without.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving season and remember to count your blessings, too!
Now, here's what we've got on our menu:
Baked egg rolls, sesame garlic noodles
Brunswick stew (a friend's recipe), pretzel bread
Beef and potato hash, oven roasted zucchini
