Busy Thanksgiving

I love cooking for Thanksgiving. I was so nervous this year that I would be miserable on Thanksgiving, as Marc and I are not together, for life or for the Holiday, but I seem to be pulling through, and cooking is helping with that.

So far this morning I have; defrosted, cleaned, prepared brine and brined the turkey for tomorrow (do not like playing with turkey, the first year I cried because I don't like eating animals), made cranberry sauce, made a pumpkin pie, worked on a sweet potato casserole that at press time is not prepared, drank a root beer float at 9 in the morning, and I'm currently planning my attack for cleaning, figuring out how to make another pie when there aren't any pie plates left, and at some point, getting dressed and making myself presentable. Somehow I don't see that happening while I dilly dally on the internet, so I guess I'd better go. Maybe I can figure out to make green bean casserole, and then officially take the role of Martha Stewart. Oh, except that I won't be a total bitch. (sorry that wasn't kid friendly. not that kids read this!)

I'm so jealous! I wish I could be cooking right now instead of being stuck at work...
