Thanksgiving Planner: T Minus-27

Well, the mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and dressing are all done, decanted into foil pans and refrigerated, I have cut up the veggies for the turkey pan and made some compound butter to rub into him, and I have trimmed 3 pounds of green beans. I have also collected the turkey, which is HUGE, but I have figured out that it will fit in the fridge. I am sweaty and less than adorable at this point, but I still need to blanch the beans, toast the cashews and get the turkey brining before I take a shower and a nap. I’m debating on whether to make the pies today or tomorrow morning; they’d be fresher if I baked them tomorrow, but the flavors might meld better if they are baked today.

I am having waves of self-doubt; I believe that the dressing is bland and has too much bread, the mashed potatoes are too lumpy, and that I didn’t make enough cranberry sauce. Must. keep. moving.

I feel like I'm fifteen - does that count? I'm lots of things, I get paid to be the Managing Editor for a local news publication, and I love my job. I am also inordinately fond of reading, animals (I have four), elephants, owls, hedgehogs writing, tramping in the woods, cooking India, Ireland, England, avocado toast, Sherlock Holmes, Harry Potter, Little Women, Fun Home, Lumber Janes, Fangirl, magic, Neil Gaiman, Jane Austen, YA books, not YA books, classical music, Salinger (OMG SALINGER), Brahms, key lime pie, indie music, podcasts, sleeping in, road trips, marmalade, museums, bookstores, the Oxford comma, BBC, The Miss Fisher Mysteries, birdwatching, seashells, kombucha, and stickers. Not a huge fan of chewing gum, jazz, trucker hats or dystopian and/or post-apolcalyptic fiction (but I'll try anything).
