Early turkey dinner with family....
I am doing this the easy way since my kitchen is not yet moved in/out. Did get the dining room ready with help of sons getting a china cabinet up. And granddaughter opening boxes and filing it. Great grand son had us chuckling as he spotted a "coin" in amongst all the stuff and mess. A penney went into his bank.
We went by GFS after Dh's P.T. session. I got ready made cole slaw; sweet potato casserole, rolls, frozen lemon and a key lime pie, mashed potatoes, and a veggie platter. So all is ready to heat/cook./serve. And I'm doing a green bean dish.
BUT the turkey. I ordered a large fresh one from the famous meat market here. Well, I started in on it when I got home and the neck is frozen in. Now I paid the higher price, so i called and it was an "error". Kinda disappoint since I had faith in this market....as opposed to China meats. I am to retun the receipt and the label of Amish Fresh turkey fo a refund. What a turkey that purchase was.
Tomorrow 12 family ae to come.....some have to come early as 2 teens have school banquets...one for marching band....one for sports cross county. 1 famiy is coming late . I've picked a meal time and will seve at noon exactly. Hope that accomodates.
Hardest thing to figure is grandkids drinks....some milk, other juice, other health dink, cola, etc. We never thought of choices. Think it'll be milk or water.
Wishing you all a happy healthy holiday.
