Pre-Thanksgiving

Today started at 7 a.m. with massive cleaning. After all, the in-laws were coming. You always look at your house differently when your mother-in-law is coming, right? Mine is an angel who I love and she could care less about the state of my house but I still must clean. Luckily I live with three slaves/children who have to do what I say. With everything done by 9 I went for a quick 3 mile run and started cooking. 12 hours later I am finally sitting down.

Today I've made, or started:

Brine for the turkey
Cornbread
Dressing
Butternut Squash Puree
Mashed Potatoes
Pumpkin Cake
Roll Dough
Cheese Ball
Whiskey Glazed Carrots
Mushroom Puffs
Biscuits
Chocolate Gravy
Scrambled Eggs

and most importantly...

Birthday Cake!!!



My baby will be 7 tomorrow. How wrong is that??

I am making a much deserved Mudslide and heading to bed. I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving tomorrow surrounded by friends and family.

I love you guys!!
