Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I am, at this very moment, waiting to put Mr. Tom in the oven. I have "thawed" this effing bird in the bottom of my fridge since Sunday, and yet I took him out to prepare him for the oven and discovered he is still full of ICE. Oh bother. I have him in the sink in cold water thawing right now, and only just managed to get his giblets out. Ah, the joys of holiday cooking, no? ^_^
I am sooo looking forward to dinner, to napping, and to Black Friday shopping the day after. I am going to really take the time to be thankful this year. This is also the first year I have PROMISED myself not to get freaked out if I still need time to do something before the parents arrive. (After all, this happens every year. I should be used to it by now.) I have also vowed no stress cooking, so if we end up eating at 3pm, so be it. Muahahahahaha! *cough* So as you can tell, come hell or highwater, I am going to have a good turkey day.
Now a special shout out to all those up late doing a turkey cooking session - I hope you have an event free go of it. :-) *gobble gobble*
