I've already made the turkey stock and the turkey neck which will be my meat.

Today I'm making green bean casserole to sit in the fridge overnight, and a big batch of brown rice to freeze, except for what I plan on eating tomorrow.

Cheesecake, and both apple pies are all done and waiting to be eaten. And this is my last year making anything for any holiday. I told the kids I am done. And my daughter and the two boys agree. They see how it take out of me.

We're bringing eggplant parmesan. My wife started frying the eggplant up 2 weeks ago. We're feeding a lot of people, so thats a lot of eggplant that needed to be fried up. She did it in 4 batches on 4 different days, freezing them. Today, she will assemble the whole thing when she gets up and cook it here. we're going to my brothers , and Im sure the oven will be occupied with the turkey, so we have to cook it last minute here, so it is still warm by the time we get there, and maybe throw it in lats minute to melt the cheese on top.

Began our cooking yesterday but that's only because we're going to Glenn's daughter's home and bringing cornbread dressing and pumpkin cheesecake.

Made the cornbread for the dressing yesterday and assembled the dressing in the crock-pot. It's delicious and easy to bring to someone's home, especially if their oven is already doing overtime. Did the cheesecake, too, and it's chilled nicely in the refrigerator.

The only things I made for our holiday meal were some potato rolls and a batch of stock using turkey necks. Also dried a loaf of bread in the dehydrator for stuffing.

Glenn and I won't have our "big" meal until Sunday so there's no pressure to get a lot done. All that is really left to do is brine, stuff and roast the turkey. Everything else either is taken care of, will take care of itself or we won't miss it.

My wife put the Salvadoran turkey into the oven a few minutes ago. I'm putting my American turkey into the smoker in about an hour. The American bird is spatchcocked so it'll cook faster.
