I’ve started cooking for Thanksgiving.
I made the pie crust dough on Monday night. It’s waiting for me to finish the pies tonight. I’m making pumpkin and my great-grandmother’s chocolate pie.
Last night I tore up 4 HUGE loaves of bread for stuffing. Seriously, these loaves are really more like 1 1/2 – 2 loaves apiece. I still don’t think it’s enough. It needs to get really stale before tomorrow morning, but it’s really humid today. I hope I gave it enough time.
This morning I baked the sweet potatoes for the sweet potato casserole, which I’m going to finish assembling at nap time. I also chopped a bunch of celery. I still have to chop onions and mince parsley. Hopefully all I’ll have to do tomorrow is assemble and bake the stuffing, bake the sweet potato casserole, and make the mashed potatoes. (It’s only 15 lbs of potatoes – no big deal, right? Ha.)
I should have started sooner; I’m feeling overwhelmed.
