Had to get up to let the doggie out to pee.  Then had to check weddingbee- I am officially addicted.

I’m up too. Before 7 AM. Mr Snow was determined that we go to bed early so we’d be up really early to cook. So here I am….and he’s still in bed. Hah.

I am up and already knee deep in chores! My wonderful sisters came over yesterday and helped finish our dinning room painting and various other things that had to get done for today. My goal: clean the top floor!

I sprained my wrist kneading dough! I called my mom (and proceded to cry cause she’s 400 miles away) and was like “THIS IS HARD!!!” and she goes, “why don’t you just put it in the Kitchen Aid with your dough hook?”

… because I’m trying to make them AUTHENTIC!!! Like my grandma makes.

I went to lunch with my mom yesterday and she told me her oven was broken!  So I ended up driving to her house to pick up the turkey, and then had to wake up early and put it in the oven about half an hour ago.

I brined it last night – in triple layered trash bags and a giant bucket because we didn’t have time or the resources to brave the stores to get a brining bag and the 20 pound turkey is bigger than all of our pots.

It’s in the 500 degree oven for a few more minutes, then I drop the temperature for three hours.. and I am SO going back to sleep!!

But I still have to make the sweet potatos! And then transport it all to my parents, an hour away!

Up and at ’em! I need to flip the turkey in its brine, then take a shower and get started on the rest of the food. Making a run to Sbux too, thank god they’re open on Thanksgiving.

Last night I made  the mac and cheese (which had to be rescued, but it worked!), green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole and cranberries using Pengy’s cranberry recipe (and they are AWESOME, but I made them without the Grand Marnier and extra OJ), brined the turkey and watched Four Christmases (cute movie).

Happy turkey day, WB friends!

Wow, your Thanksgivings sound great, friends!  I actually got to sleep in late, till almost 9:30.  Good thing about having your ILs cooking for you!

I bought most of my remaining supplies last night which included a meat thermometer and turkey baster.  The turkey has been defrosting for a week in the fridge so it should be ready to cook today.

To all those who have never cooked a turkey before, DO NOT cook a frozen turkey in a vat of boiling water.  It will blow up!  If you need one that’s already de-thawed go to your local grocery store because they may be available.  Otherwise, there’s always ham or prime rib which is just as delicious!
