We will spend Thanksgiving at home in our new house! Exciting!
I didn't want to spend a lot of time dealing with a turkey so we are doing Cornish Hens in the crock pot.
other things on the menu....
Mimosa's with Blood Orange Juice
Potato Sage Rolls from New Seasons
Cranberries- Local berries from Bandon, Oregon
I recently was given a box of old cookie cutters that were my Grandma's and then my Mom's. I hid them from the Boy. Well he discovered them the other night. I knew if he had them all he would want to do was make cookies. He didn't care that I had worked all day and it was 6pm. I told him we would make cookies on Thanksgiving. I have the day off and we can make them then. I told him I didn't have all the ingredients. He has asked every night when I get home if I got the ingredients and if we can make cookies. I plan on using my Mom's recipe for Animal Cookies. They end up being really soft cookies as they have buttermilk in them!
I guess cookies will be dessert unless I stop off and buy something. I don't think we will get crazy and make a pie.
I'm grateful for my family and friends. I hope all of you have a fun, safe day tomorrow. I will be thinking of my Grandpa tomorrow when I watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
