Pecan and pumpkin pies, butternut squash are cooking today. But that's all for tomorrow.

Tonight's dinner will be pastrami sandwiches.

I have a middle pork loin roast. Never seen the cut before, but our local market had them. Looks like a beef rib roast, but pork. Going to roast that tonight. Probably roast some garnet yam and yukon gold potatoes to go with. Veg TBD.

I'll be making turkey stock for tomorrow's gravy and also will make the cranberries tonight so they have time to mellow and meld.

Mashed potatoes, corn casserole, pies, a cheese ball, cupcakes... all for tomorrow. No dinner plans tonight! We might just order pizza since the kitchen will be busy with all that other stuff.

I'm making pecan pies today and brining our turkey. I've been cooking for three days in preparation for tomorrow (everything but the bird and gravy is done and ready to go), so I'm not cooking dinner tonight. Chinese take-out for dinner.

Turkey bolognese for us here in the UK. I will try to remember to take a photo once cooked, I always forget because I'm so desperate to eat my meal!

Ranchewife-- that's a lot of prep 3 days cooking beforehand. It is so worth it. Last year DxW ( and I) found out she/ we were having thanksgiving with less than a week's notice. We cleaned her already immaculate house until you needed sun-glasses and then set about the dinner plan. I think we made gravy in advance by cooking thighs and wings etc, gallons, and I don't remember what else can be done in advance. I wonder if we made the dressing in advance, I don't remember doing too much on Thanksgiving day, certainly no chopping, except roast the turkey. WELL I do Remember I was not allowed to rest on my laurels, whatever that means, heheh, AS I was not allowed to sit down and rest the whole day until dinner. I know one sis-in law came over the day before to peel 20 lb/s potatoes that we just set in cold water in kettles. It would be too much to do the morning of.

Tomorrow, I am going to DxW in the a.m to peel potatoes, as she is bringing the mashed taters this year, ( in crock pots), to her bro's in time for dinner, and her dominant arm is still healing from a fracture this summer. It's not all goodness and kindness of heart. There is a standard to maintain, and that includes smooth no lumpy potatoes. heheh.

I think dinner will be something light. I've got the makings for Nachos and that's pretty easy.

since we're having traditional turkey day tomorrow, i wanted something very different tonight. so, i'm picking up vegetarian indian takeout, and dw is making stuffed flounder for a protein.

the indian takeout is a south indian thali (curries, roti, papadum, chutney, daal), veggie biryani, an extra spicy masala dosa (i challenged the guy to make it as hot as any chili head indian would like it - maybe a mistake when i saw the wry smile on his face when i asked...), and some mango lassis to wash it down.

We're coming in too fast and everyone is burning bright
Hundred and eighty two seconds, baby, and heaven is a trick of the light
Cold hell, my love, Cold hell, my love
