So...The Day Before

Happy Thanksgiving Eve everyone!
I think I'm going to love this day.
We plan on staying in our jammies, lounging around the house, and just being together.

Third Daughter is the only one I could get to try this beautiful pomegranite.
She's loving it.  Real fruit snacks!

With the girlies help, I've started preparations for the big dinner tomorrow.  The bread is cubed and veggies chopped ready for stuffing.  Next we will be peeling potatoes for the mashed potatoes - our favorite side dish.  Later we will be baking pies and trying our best not to taste them.

Thanksgiving dinner is my favorite.  To eat and to cook.  I absolutely love cooking holiday food, and I absolutely love cooking for those I love.  It is my favorite.  I love today, and I love tomorrow.

I'm hoping that tomorrow, between basting the turkey and other last minute preparations, we will get in a game of family football or our favorite card game, UNO.  We definitely will be watching the Macey's Thanksgiving Day parade and A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.  Oh how I love holiday traditions.

And today we officially are breaking out the Christmas music.
We will mostly be listening to this favorite Christmas mix from last year::

Oooh...I do love a good, tart lemon meringue. (Never made one, though. I'm intimidated.) My favorite is banana cream.

Good luck with your preparations. I'm going to spend today like a typical shopping.

I get to cook my first turkey this year so it should be interesting. I just finished preparing the brine and it smells delicious :) Next up: pie crust. I like my pies layered so I am making pumpkin and chocolate pudding each with a layer of cream cheese. I just love all food.
