    We're being low key this year. I'll get the boneless breast out Wed night. It should take less than two hours to prep and cook. Sometime Thurs, probably around noon or 1pm I'll start a pie and the cranberry salad, which has to set in the fridge. Put the bird in around 3 or 4pm.

    About half an hour before dinner I'll start the potatoes, brussels sprouts and gravy.

    Probably be playing computer games with DH the rest of the time.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    Thanksgiving #1 is at Grandma's Alzheimer's home (hooray, institutional food!), so nothing to be done but just show up.

    Thanksgiving #2 is at my inlaws' and I am bringing herb & onion dinner rolls. I plan to make them Thursday morning when I get up.

    I hosted for many years, and though that is a lot of work, I never minded it and I miss it.

    2-3 days prior to Thanksgiving, I get all of my baking out of the way. That way, on Thanksgiving, the 2 biggest things that I have to concentrate on are the turkey & mashed potatoes & I'm not stressed

    I'm baking a ham today since the inlaws are here. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving at another home so I'll cook things tomorrow to take with us. I have a turkey to cook either Friday or Saturday, depending when it is thawed. LOL

    I have an excuse not to cook since I will be working lol! My kids will go with their dad to his parents' house for dinner. After work I will drive with my bf to his sister's house up north for dinner. We will bring something store bought to add to the dinner.

    I am baking a pumpkin pie and brownies tonight. Tomorrow I will bake a black forest ham and make cheesy harvest potatoes, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and serve some rolls and olives. That should be enough for 2 of us! At least I will have leftovers to eat this weekend.

    I decided to bake my rolls today since tomorrow will be too hurried between destinations. They are half-way done and already smell good!

    Having friends over on Saturday so will be cooking on Friday. Nothing difficult. Bought a rotisserie turkey breast on sale and just need to defrost and reheat it.

    Tomorrow I can make the cranberry sauce.

    I made my first apple pie tonight . Found some granny smiths at 49 cents lb and used the leftover apples to make applesauce.

    Dinner tomorrow will be easy peasy: turkey thighs, mashed pots, stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce.

    If buy cooking you mean buying pies from Costco, then yes we've already done some cooking ahead of time
