Thanksgiving Preparation

Tara and I are in full Thanksgiving preparation mode. I just made the brine and it's starting it's cool down. The house smells of chicken stock and spices. We haven't quite figured out where to store it overnight, since the fridge is full already. I picked up the turkey from Von Hanson's today and it's taking up the bottom drawer. I'm sure we'll figure something out. I'm also doing a trial run of sweet potatoes. We picked up some at Ranch Market for $.25/pound and I want to make sure they'll work out. Tara make some cornbread last night and has that and a loaf of French bread air-drying for her stuffing. She's making an apple crisp right now. Since I work from home, we're both hoping it'll last until Thursday. :)

He's already stolen a bite of the apple crisp! Luckily for him, he said it was perfect. That's what saved his life.

I have NOT stolen any of the apple crisp!!! I merely stuck a toothpick into it a couple times to test the tenderness of the apples. They are basically mush, which is just the way I like it. :)
