Today I am busy getting my house in order and finishing up some baking in preparation for tomorrow.
While my to-do list is long, I feel so good right now because I already had some of the big dishes prepared ahead of time and they are now thawing in my refrigerator.
I put all of the food items I froze during the past few weeks into the refrigerator on Tuesday morning and they will hopefully be thawed out by tomorrow. In case you missed any of my make-ahead Thanksgiving posts, here are the links.
I thought you might like to see how I stay organized for big events like tomorrow. I wouldn’t get anything done without my lists. I am a paper and pen kind of gal, no electronic lists for me. I love crossing things off too much.
The circled items on the yellow list are all I have left to make food-wise. This morning I cooked some green beans and corn that we grew in our garden this year and will re-heat them in crockpots tomorrow.
I also made rolls and a cake for Joshua since there are several things on our menu he won’t be able to eat due to his allergies. I definitely don’t want to leave him out.
Last night I made some dinner rolls using a new recipe that I found at How Does She. The recipe made a ton of rolls that I will re-heat tomorrow right before we eat.
This is just one pan of the rolls. There is another pan just like it that I didn’t take a picture of. We may have rolls forever since my mom is bringing her yummy dinner rolls. That really wouldn’t be a bad thing, though.
I did want to note that I tried one of the rolls and it was delicious. The dough was easy to work with, but I accidentally cut the dough into 16 pieces instead of the 12 recommended.
I think the rolls would have been prettier if I had followed those directions better. Regardless of how they look, they will be tasty.
Well, my break time is almost over. I better get back to work. How are your Thanksgiving preparations going? Are you hosting Thanksgiving or are you traveling this year?
