It is less than a week till Thanksgiving. Are you READY?
I have bought both a ham and turkey this year. Most everything else I either had, or have acquired over time. Potatoes - check, dressing stuff - check, noodles - check, rolls - check, ingredients for pecan pie - check, green beans (from garden) - check, whipped cream - check, and what ever else I want to fix.
Sounds kind of carb laden doesn't it? Oh well, it's the holiday.
Last week we were watching Diners, Drive-ins, Dives, and they had visited a place here in town. The restaurant always served noodles and mashed potatoes on the same meal. Guy thought that was crazy!!! He had never heard of having both at the meal - double carbs in his words. The owner said it must be a mid-west thing then! That is how we grew up - both were always served together. Is it an Indiana thing????? Do any of you from other parts of the country do this as well?
I have worked at trying to get a lot of the Christmas done as well. Shouldn't have a lot to do after turkey day this year.
I truly think I could have bought the entire dinner for less than $25 if I had left out one meat.
Hope you are getting to that ready point, so that all systems will be a go for Thursday. Enjoy your weekend and stay frugal friends.
