Sorry for forgetting to get a post up last night. I fell asleep watching Extreme Homes and just woke up. AWESOME!!!
I’ll posts some photos in a bit. Off to read Brad’s site.
Ok, here’s the rundown. The goal of this weekend is to get all my paperwork for parent-teacher conferences in order (which isn’t much work, I’m just slow) and Lloyd has to write a sermon for the nursing home services on Sunday. Other than that, it is lazy, lazy time around here. Our meal was a simple affair:
Four cereal-bowl pies. Two apple, two blackberry.
Stuffing, which I make from whatever bread happens to be handy around the house. This year it was English Muffin bread, a whole wheat bagel, and some pumpernickel bread (not shown).
Turkey, in a freezer-to-oven contraption. It baked in a inner roasting bag, which was freaky but worked out fine.
There was also a green bean casserole, some undercooked mashed potatoes (my fault) and copious amounts of gravy. Mmmmmm…… looking forward to being sick of leftovers….
The turkey took much longer to cook than it said on the bag, and we were starving, so we each ate a pie before dinner. When the food was actually done we were stuffed, so we just made up little plates to nibble on while watching ‘Brave’ on iTunes. Lesson learned: next year just make pie and buy two Swanson dinners.
