Thanksgiving will be in Fresno this year. I usually avoid Thanksgiving dinners like the plague. The last time I cooked a Thanksgiving dinner was 1987, and Brad and I usually take off to Las Vegas or San Francisco. Of course THIS year, we want Federico to experience a REAL AMERICAN THANKSGIVING with a big family, too much food, and lots of people, so we are heading to Fresno with Connie's whole gang. There will be 15 people for dinner, and we are all helping.
My list includes 2 huge pans of stuffing, two kinds of cranberry sauce, two desserts, cookies, and Mac & Cheese for Friday night's dinner.
I made a Nutella Cheesecake, and a gingerbread cheesecake, and they are in my freezer.
13 dozen cookies are baked.
Today I am making cranberry sauce and six pound of ciabatta cubes for the stuffing.
I also work a few hours and have my Domestic Violence group tonight. There will be a quick pasta for dinner.
I am excited about Thanksgiving this year!
