Almost Wordless Thursday

There's a lot of planning to be done before Thanksgiving.  Some of the kids are coming home as early as tomorrow night, and the relatives from Denver are arriving Tuesday afternoon.

I'm furiously cheering Dan on to finish his project, and he is in the home stretch.  Finish painting may not get done until after Thanksgiving, but knowing Dan, I'm betting that even that will be done.  (For the record, I am an excellent painter, and can paint a window with a 6" brush without masking or scraping, but I really don't like painting, and do it only under duress.)  You might not see pictures until after next week.  It all depends upon whether my brain is thoroughly muddled or not.

So, here's my food order, to be phoned in on Monday for Tuesday delivery, subject to further additions (and this will last through December, BTW):


 And food plans for this week, next and Thanksgiving:

And I made a "practice" pumpkin pie the other night.  It's never too soon to be absolutely certain that your skills are up to par.

How are your Thanksgiving plans coming along?

Happy Thorsday, everyone!

Holy Mackerel Marjie!!!

Well, maybe not mackerel but Tilapia will do, lol...

Sounds like you have everything under control. Dan is sure to get everything done:) Sounds like you're going to have a house full. You know you LOVE it!

I'm still planning my menu. Two of Marion's grandchildren are coming with their families. She's thrilled as am I. I have oatmeal cookies in the freezer for the kids and a big pan of lasagna and home made sauce just waiting to be tackled. The rest is ify as of today:)

Thanks for sharing, Marjie...

You're the only one I know who orders cases for a family meal - the pie looks delicious.

As you know, I'm a big fan of your holiday shopping lists. I find them utterly daunting and charming. This year it's seafood gumbo, so on Saturday I'll visit the fish monger for a bag of fish heads and other gross items for the broth.

I'm exhausted just reading your lists. How do you do it woman? You are like a superhero. Can't wait to see the end result of the project... as well as turkey day. We started out with just 3 for dinner and so far I count 10 and almost a week to go. We keep calling the turkey guy and adding to the poundage. It's fun though. I say that because my hubster is the cook. Love him

AMAZING! Your holiday lists never cease to amaze me. I love your handwriting.

You do have beautiful handwriting, and we do love pumpkin pie.

We can't even agree on where we'll eat dinner Thursday. The Knight says "wing it" and I say we need reservations. (We'll be at the beach.)
