Well it’s about time!

Finally the weather is feeling like fall instead of summer.  Yesterday we were in the 80’s again but today, down in the 50’s.  And as a plus, the leaves are blowing out of the yard instead of piling up in front of the steps 🙂  Gotta love that.

I’m sure everyone is busy getting ready for tomorrow.  I think I’ll make the cornbread tonight and cut up a few things so I can throw it all together in the morning.  I always start getting nervous about what might go wrong.  What if the turkey doesn’t get done all the way through?  Of course I have and use a meat thermometer but I’m just saying.  What if I totally screw up the dressing?  I don’t go by a recipe, I just throw a little of this and that in the pan and cook it.  What if the topping for the sweet potatoes doesn’t have the right consistency, again, no recipe followed.   What if I’ve forgotten something and have to make a mad dash for the store in the morning?  I’m such a freak!  LOL!  I know it shouldn’t be about any of those things but I don’t want to be one of “those” stories that gets repeated every year.  “Remember the year Marla made the dressing and it was dry as a bone or tasted like I don’t know what?”  I so don’t want to be one of those stories!  So I am sending out some good cooking and transporting food vibes out to all you ladies and I hope you are sending some out to me also.   

Enjoy your day and take a moment to reflect on all  the things you are thankful for.

    I have found that when cooking, if things appear to be going wrong I must not have drank enough wine.

    Have a great day!

    All went well. Now I am in full on Christmas mode. The house is decorated and as soon as my oldest daughter gets home from her Dad’s, we’ll decorate the tree.
