I am SO excited for Thanksgiving this year. It’s the first time in 5 years that I will get to celebrate with my mom and my step-dad flies in tomorrow. We have so much to be thankful for this year and I am determined to celebrate right What’s funny is that Thanksgiving was the ONE day I was hoping not to be in the hospital but I feel like Baby B will make her appearance then just for that reason haha. We decided that in the event I am having a baby or still admitted we will just move turkey day so I can still enjoy it. This is what we are planning:
Herb and shallot roasted turkey
Mashed potatoes and gravy
Sweet potato casserole
Homemade green bean casserole
Cheddar sage biscuits
Hopefully the little turkey in my belly comes out soon so I can enjoy a beer with the meal
Side note: Chris and I were talking yesterday about how crazy it is that “Black Friday” is now starting Thanksgiving night. What happened to being with your family?! And for those who don’t care about the holiday, what about the workers who want to be with their families? Shake my head.
What’s on your Thanksgiving menu? What do you think about shopping on Thursday??
