Thanksgiving -2. 11/21/17

Here we are two days from Thanksgiving and it seems like we are going to the grocery store every day! I am trying to be organized but it seems like there is always something I have forgotten.

John has made gravy over the weekend and taken the turkey apart. He cooks it in stages making sure that nothing gets over cooked. Daughter and I have been working on the table  washing all the glasses and checking the silverware. Right now the dining room looks like this!

We are having ten people, we three, son and his wife and two children, daughter-in-law’s sister and parents. I am trying to make things a little easier this year by doing a lot of the prep early and by asking the participants to pitch in with a dish and also with some clean up help.

In the meantime life goes on and John and I need to have a daily meals. I had a mashed chickpea sandwich for lunch and made a big pot of spaghetti with meat sauce which will hopefully last until tomorrow night.
