You go, girls! I rather miss the days when I could do what you're doing, but we must roll with the changes.
I'm only responsible for 3 items, and am still trying to figure out short-cuts.
I sort of committed myself to shrimp cocktail, planning to use some of the shrimp we have in the deep freeze. When I fix that at home, it's always peel and eat, but I got to thinking, that's pretty messy for Thanksgiving dinner. There will be 11-12 people there, and at 6 shrimp each, that's a lot of shrimp to clean if I peel them first.
I thought about buying one of those big shrimp rings at the grocery store, where they're already peeled and cooked, and have a little container of cocktail sauce. But I've decided to buy a couple of bags of peeled pre-cooked shrimp instead, and make my own cocktail sauce. I could present them in a bowl of ice, with the cocktail sauce in a smaller bowl in the center, and some sliced lemons scattered about. Aside from my husband and me, the people eating them won't know the difference.
That will leave me more time to spend on my oyster dressing and apple crumb pie.
