Pumpkin and pecan pies, cheeseball, frosted jello all for tomorrow. Dinner is hamburgers and chips.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Daughter is home from college, so we're having her favorite meal tonight: pancakes with breakfast sausage.

Truth be told, I kind of like it myself.

I don't know yet. My day didn't exactly go as planned. I had intended to go to the store today... and tomorrow is out. I'll raid the freezer when I start getting hungry. The nachos mentioned earlier are a possibility...
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I"M POOPED. Older son wanted Thanksgiving dinner at his house but when I asked him what he wanted me to bring, I thought the list would never end.

"We have to have your fabulous dressing, and your gravy too, and I love that broccoli salad you do, and that fresh cranberry sauce, and could you do something for desert too?" He makes the best turkey EVER~California style on the Webber barbeque. Someone is bringing mashed potato casserole and candied yams.

Everything is done and ready to go for tomorrow. I'll be doing Babe's Pumpkin Dump Cake in the morning.

Tonight we're eating a small casserole of the dressing (sausage, dried cranberries, pecans with celery and onion) moistened with homemade turkey neck stock.
I'll lay the meat from the necks on top, and drizzle with some gravy. Yumm...

I decided to go the fried route tonight. First time I ever "gang" breaded and fried shrimp, because they were smallish.
After they had thawed I dumped them into a strainer and shook, then dusted with flour and tossed, then "forked" them into the egg wash, then forked them into a gallon ziploc with the crumbs. Tossed them around a bit and layed the bag flat on a cutting board. Then I cut it open and carried the board to the oil where I could quickly pick them up and drop into the oil. It worked pretty well. There's a lot of shrimp there.

I made our favorite no-meat lasagna for dinner.

I spent pretty much all day in the kitchen prepping for tomorrow and got everything done I needed to! I'm whooped but tomorrow's gonna be a breeze. The best part is I'm not feeling one bit stressed about it.

I'm making salisbury steak with roasted, seasoned new potatoes (garlic, basil, chives and salt) and veggies on the side.
A little kindness goes a long way.

Nice shrimp, Pac!

DH finished the tuna salad, I had a handful of Tostitos and two fun size Snickers that I rediscovered, while making the scalloped corn for tomorrow.
