...is that so much of it tastes better the NEXT day.
So that means I have to bake and cook 80% of the meal one to two days early.
My mom is here so I have some help but my refrigerator and freezer are BULGING at the seams. I know that's a good problem to have but logistically its tough.
Done so far:
Navy bean soup (2 dry pounds worth)
Potato Salad (I usually eat cauliflower salad but my family would strangle me on a "holiday")
Brine the turkey (first time doing this)
Cabbage with collards and peppers ( I don't usually eat greens but I throw some in with the cabbage and peppers as another family compromise)
Tomorrow is the easy day:
Lemonade Iced Tea
I hope you all spend the day with family and friends (and people you love, LOL)! My mommy's here until December 6 so I am HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!
