It seems unbelievable, but I actually have all of my assigned Thanksgiving food items, save a fresh baked apple pie, ready to go.
Fortunately for me, casseroles freeze well. Despite my touch o’ cold, this week I made green bean casserole and two versions of sweet potato casserole. They sit, wrapped securely in multiple layers of aluminum foil, ready to defrost during the drive to my sister-in-law’s where we’ll bake them Thanksgiving Day.
Our celebration this year will include 16 people. While debating how much to prepare, I stumbled across a wonderful website that helps you plan quantities. You can bet that I’ve bookmarked Ellen’s Kitchen for future reference!
On a side note: While I’m feeling better today, poor Kelly definitely has had it worse. He’s still down with a fever. However, this illness experience is much better than last February when we both had the flu at the same time. At least this go-round, I’ve been able to play nursemaid. Feel better soon, sweetie!!!
