Are you cooking for Thanksgiving? If you are, what are you making? I went to the grocery stores today to pick up the last of the things I'll need. I am making a turkey, dressing, gravy, Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, pecan pie, lefsa.......and daughter and three daughters in law are furnishing the veggies, salads, pies, and dinner rolls. Think we'll have enough?
I was looking in the newspaper today for sales on the things I needed. Well, the sales were on: pretzels, crackers, and tortilla chips. None of those on my dinner table for Thanksgiving! There were also sales on stove top stuffing and I make my own so don't need that. There was also a sale on ground coffee, but I grind my own beans so don't need that. And a big sale on various kinds of pop. The grandkids would probably like that, but I didn't buy any. So, I didn't get anything I bought today on sale. In fact, I seldom find the things I buy on sale, or find a coupon for it. If you don't buy boxed mixes, instant whatever, highly processed foods, you don't find much on sale or with a coupon.
Oh, the meal I'm cooking is the second Thanksgiving meal of the day. Grand daughter Katie is having her first holiday meal of her married life! So we'll be there at noon. Guess we'd best just sample at both places, though. The newspaper this morning said it was not unusual for someone to consume over 2000 calories at one sitting on Thanksgiving. 2000 calories is what a grown man needs for a whole day! And I'm guessing no one eats just that one meal that day!
