My Plans Changed
I'm writing this on my tablet so it might be pretty short. I mentioned on a news feed post I'm doing a bit of baking today. Guess I'm giving out a lot of pies and fudge this year! But now, mostly for my sake I want to map out the rest of my week.

Tomorrow will be fairly easy. I planned to do a Mexican themed meal BUT...the elderly man my husband helps sometimes surprised us with a monster bird. A 24lb turkey!! I don't exactly have a pan big enough... So I'm improvising by putting the bird in my casserole baking dish then placing that on a cookie sheet and wrapping everything in foil. Hopefully it won't drip everywhere. The bird is way bigger than the baking dish. Once its cooked I can debone it. Then will bake cornbread.

Wednesday. I will devote to making a double pan of dressing. Since I had not planned on a traditional Thanksgiving meal, I didn't buy bread for dressing. Soooo thankfully I bought two bags of plain bagels. Ill toast them and add to the cornbread to make dressing. Hopefully that will work. Ill also make fruit salad. Made a few days ahead of time gives the flavors time to .mix💗

Thursday all ill need to do is heat up the turkey, make gravy, and bake the dressing. I've got five pounds of fresh sweet potatoes and instead of making candied yams I'm going to make fried sweet potatoes and onions like my Grandma used to make. I've got some fresh green beans that hubby offered to snap for me. (He's so xweet) and ill make Southern style green beans.

Our elderly neighbor and his brother will come eat with us and help us give out all the pies. Sometimes, our best laid plans get tossed out the window but it's worth it if it makes an old man smile.
