Not much to write today (only 551 words! :/ ). Since Thanksgiving is next week and I’m cooking (again), my mother and I have been doing meal planning, so my writing fell by the wayside today. I’m still on track to reach 50K words by November 30, so I’m cool.

For some reason, this year’s meal has expanded. My mother and her husband keep asking if I’m making this or that, which are veiled requests to make said item. I don’t mind: Thanksgiving is the one time of the year that I like to go all out for the meal. Come Christmas time, though, it’s all about minimalism and for New Years’ Eve, even more so.

Tom the Turkey will be taken out of the freezer and thawed in the refrigerator on Monday.  I’ll start the desserts (apple and sweet potato pies, potato salad, mac and cheese) on Wednesday. Turkey goes in the oven EARLY Thursday morning (temperamental oven which has a tendency to turn off below a certain temperature, so I’m uncomfortable with overnight cooking at my normal 200 degrees F.), along with vegetables (collard greens, green beans, corn, mashed potatoes).

I’m ready. Just have to add a few more things to the list…which is now approaching two pages. 😀

Hope your writing is going well. Keep going: ten days left!

Thanks for stopping by.
