Thanksgiving Cooking

25 Nov

Happy Thanksgiving!  The Husband and I popped out of bed this morning and headed to Starbucks to get Gingerbread Lattes!  YUM!  : )  We also had to head to the grocery store to buy newspapers for the Black Friday coupons and some foil. 

Coupon mess on the couch- I love looking at the deals!


Today the Husband and I are going to cook for the first time ever!  We are going to make a turkey, green bean casserole and stuffing!  I am so excited and can’t wait!  We started prepping last night by cutting up our bread for the stuffing!  I can’t wait to keep you guys updated!

Here is a look in our fridge this morning, the only things in there right now are for Thanksgiving and a few random things!  Top row- mimosa fixings, and milk.  Next is bread, next row is eggs (for stuffing) and lettuce (incase we make a green salad with the meal) and below that is some oil.  Not shown is our vegetable keeper filled with onions, celery and carrots.

Thanksgiving is taking over our kitchen and I couldn’t love it any more!  : )



Table setting.  I like to pretend I am Martha Stewart mixed with a little Sandra Lee!  Yes, there really is 4 glasses per setting- red wine, champagne flute, water goblet and coffee, I am just that dorky! 



I want to make a dessert as well, but don’t have much ingredients to work with , so we will see what happens with that!  I am off to explore the pantry and see what I can come up with! 

What are you cooking today?
