I don't just love to cook, I LOVE to cook! Thanksgiving dinner is one of my favorites and I plan for it months in advance.
Today, H was off on a road trip with his friends from the Veteran's Club so I got busy and started cooking and baking right away early in the morning.
In the time H was off on his road trip, I put together a crock pot full of Hungarian Cabbage Rolls for dinner, baked three pumpkin pies, two of which will be donated to the Veteran's Club for their annual Thanksgiving Dinner for veterans who have no family nearby and would otherwise be alone for the holiday.
Another pumpkin pie and a Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie will be for our dinner on Thursday, along with Cranberry Ginger Sauce, Cranberry Orange Relish, and bacon cornbread for the Cornbread, cranberry and pecan stuffing which I'll put together on Thursday morning along with a traditional bread stuffing.
Am I pooped? You bet. If only Sluggo could take my picture instead of the other way around. You'd probably find me in the same position in front of the wood stove!
Last night at 4:50 pm, the International Space Station flew directly overhead and that baby was hauling, well, you know what. I tried to get a picture of it, but it was going so fast and I had the camera in zoom, so this was the best I could do:
Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance for another shot before it was out of range. Oh well, at least I saw it!
Off to put my feet up now.
Life is good but tired.
