Well, folks, with two more days until Thanks
forgiving me your land Day, I’m still in the planning stages. I know what I’ll cook and where I’ll go but I’m unsure as to what my hair will say or what I’m wearing.
This will be my first time ever spending Thanksgiving with the family of a significant other (long story… not worth telling). I plan on making a masterful mac and cheese for my family and an extra pan to take to Rumple’s family’s house as a kind gesture.
Tomorrow after school, I’m coming straight home to prepare a few tester pans for close friends and co-workers. I want to make sure I have it just right!
Besides cooking and chilling with Rumple’s family, I’ll be spending time with my Daddy! Yay!! I don’t get to see him too often since he lives in another state, so it will be good to see him and his crazy side of the family. Gotta have balance! Rumple will finally get to meet my dad. Yay? LOL! My mom’s family is getting together as well. So I have a lot of running around to do.
I hope to make it to the grocery store tonight to get the ingredients for my small Thanksgiving meal.
Here’s what’s on my menu:
Peach and Rosemary Glazed Chicken Breasts
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Sautéed Collards/Kale (or Callaloo – depending on how I feel while in the grocery store)
Dressing with Apples, Chicken Sausage, and Cranberries
Chanell’s Lobster Mac & Cheese aka Bourgie Mac!
I can’t wait to eat and spend time with my family!!!
What are you doing on Thursday? What are you looking forward to eating?
