Friday Morning Haiku

Come on Thanksgiving!!

So what is everyone's plan for Thanksgiving?  Are you hosting?  Are you making your special dish, and if so - what is it?  

My friends and I are having our own Thanksgiving this Sunday and I am making cornbread and caramelized onion stuffing and some homemade cranberry sauce.  I will post the recipes this weekend after I make them.

Thankfully, I am not hosting actual Thanksgiving, otherwise I would have gone officially insane.  I am taking a big exam** on Tuesday (which is why I've hardly been posting - I've been studying!) so I really REALLY can't wait to just RELAX.  I am planning on watching all of the earlier Harry Potter movies and then going to see the new one (!).  I am also going to decorate my house (YAYAYAYA!) and maybe paint?  Or perhaps I will just play Lego Harry Potter on XBOX instead.  Either way, it's going to be a glorious break! :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful break and a lovely Thanksgiving - safe travels!

My wife and I travel to three meals on Thanksgiving/Christmas/Easter. It is a filling day.

Last year, one of my best friends was in Afghanistan (he's in the Air Force and has missed the last 3 Thanksgivings due to deployments) over Thanksgiving, so we cooked a huge meal for him in the middle of December. After driving an hour to his house for the meal (we cooked most stuff the day before and reheated at his house), we get there and he woke up that morning sick. Crazy things happen, but he was glad to finally get Thanksgiving.

We're actually hosting at the beach house. I created a planning spreadsheet. All is under control!

Jay - That seems exhausting! I bet your families are super glad though. Have you ever considered hosting at your place, or would that be too much? Also, you are a super sweet friend to still make sure your friend had a Thanksgiving!

Mel - OMG me neither!

Beth - Spreadsheets and timelines are the way to go! Good luck!! :)
