Haven't been on the internet much this week. DH has been working like a dog. He's been in at work at 2 am or 5 am all week. That means I get to do everything with the kids which kind of wears you down as the end of the week approaches. Not that I'm complaining--life's too short to moan about everything--and I'm not the one getting up in the wee hours of the morning.
So--today I realized DH invited 6 people to Thanksgiving on Sunday. Ahem. That'll make 10 altogether, though half of them are little and so are less bothered by the culinary delights served in the Anderson household. They might notice the thick clouds of dog hair floating around the ground floor as both mutts are molting and I haven't vaccuumed or mopped for a week. I have been too busy (hang my head in shame).
Didn't I mention I don't do roasts???
So what the heck do people eat for Thanksgiving? I'm pretty much assuming the same sort of meal we'd eat back in the UK for Easter. Turkey, roast spuds, and veggies. Followed by a traditional pumpkin pie and apple pie because DH hates pumpkin. Actually, as I am making the pumpkin pie from scratch, I'd better make a BIG apple pie just in case :)
The good news is DH cooks roasts (yum yum).
I also just bought some jalapeno pepper jelly which I'm going to spread over some warm brie--and maybe I'll get a shrimp ring because I love shrimp. I figure Thanksgiving here is all about food--so I'm trying :)
