Thanksgiving Preps...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

....are underway here. Well, kinda. I already cleaned the bird so all that's left to do with it is put some butter on it and pop it in the roasting bag then pop it in the oven. No stuffing?? No stuffing...well, maybe an apple. I have also made the peanut butter pie that the little one loves. It's now in the freezer to set in. For the other pie, I am still debating if I should make an apple pie or a pumpkin pie. I haven't tried making apple pie so I'm a bit unsure if I should do it now or try it when there's no occasion. Pumpkin pie is the husband's favorite so I've made it a couple of times already. We'll see.

As for the sides, I am thinking of making some 'smashed potatoes' with a twist....I'm going to twist the potatoes...LOL. I make mashed potatoes on a regular basis, sometimes once a week, so I don't feel like making it for Thanksgiving. Hopefully, the husband will be able to find the baby potatoes I use to make the smashed potatoes...if not, maybe the small red potatoes will work. As for the veggies...not a clue yet. I have green beans in the fridge but I'm the only one that likes them. Maybe corn...maybe...

Elow Ate J! Hehehe... yeah somehow shutdown pah rin ako... hindi tumatakbo ang utak ko dahil sa antok. Anyway long expired nah ang Thanksgiving Day dito sa Canada. we had our thanksgiving day last October 13 kasi. So the US Thanksgiving day falls in November, I didn't know that (know I know hehehe).

Pero hindi kami nag-celebrate nang thanksgiving nung nag thanksgiving dito sa canada. Hindi kasi kami marunong magluto nang turkey hehehe. Pareho lang bah sa pagluto nang chicken? Hindi kasi sanay sa turkey, chicken lang hehehe.

Anyway, signing out muna ako sa real world and signing in to dream world... ZzZzZ...
