It's Starting....

So, I had this week's menus all planned out....

 And then we decided that the kids couldn't come here this weekend to rip out and replace my tile kitchen floor (for one thing, we didn't find a tile my beloved and I both agreed upon)...

And then my oldest son decided he would be here the weekend AFTER Thanksgiving to celebrate on their way back from wherever they're going, instead of the weekend BEFORE.... the menu now looks like this:

with, of course, notes to myself on a few of the things I have to remember to do.

So, it's never too early to start!  The whole cranberry sauce is now cooked, and cooling.  Pie crusts are next.  Here's the recipe for whole cranberry sauce, in case you forget to read the back of your bag of cranberries:


1 Bag Cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup cold water

Combine all ingredients in a pot, bring to a boil, and boil for about 5 minutes, until the berries begin to pop.  Remove from the heat, let it cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until you need it, at least overnight.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

there's no way around a hand-written to-do list during thanksgiving, i'd say. i remain in awe of you. :)
