Pre-Holiday Preparation

Today was a cooking day for me, with the girls getting to go with Daddy and grandparents to the Knock, Knock Museum. They had a great time, and I got everything done. Our dishwasher is getting a workout! Today I made:
  • Deviled eggs (these are ridiculously hard because of the shelling -- I cannot do it well to save my life)
  • Cranberry salad
  • Pumpkin pies (one regular, one sugar free)
  • Rice Krispie treats
  • Mashed sweet potatoes (debating putting marshmallows or pecans or both on top when I bake tomorrow)
  • Cornbread dressing, Gran's recipe
Tomorrow I have to make
  • Turkey - going to inject and roast it ... this is Aunt B's best tip
  • Cook the dressing and sweet potatoes
  • Corn casserole
  • Green bean casserole
  • Warm rolls
  • Boil and mash potatoes
  • Heat gravy
  • Whip cream
What am I forgetting? Hopefully pictures tomorrow, although you could look at years' past to see the same dishes.

I'm going to try to take Christmas card photos of the girls tomorrow in matching sweaters. The light's actually pretty good right now in the back yard, but I don't have it together to get it done. There's a sale on Amazon cards ... 50% off and it includes free envelope personalization and printing on both sides of the card ... through November 25, so Saturday. Surely I can get it done by then.
