So, in years past, I've shown you my shopping lists, menu planning, etc, before Thanksgiving. We're doing it a little differently this year. This was what I ordered from my restaurant supply house:
Have you ever seen eleven hundred dollars worth of food? Well, here you go.
Note that there's 20 pounds of chicken in the sink, waiting to be wrapped in 1 pound packages (I have one of those dandy food vacuum sealer). It only took me about 2 hours to get it all done, including the 20 pounds of ground beef on the floor in one of the other pictures.
Now I have to get serious about scheduling my pre-holiday preparation, along with nailing down the census for each day. Menus maybe tomorrow? We'll see.
Happy Friday, everyone!
