Here comes Thanksgiving and, as always, I can’t wait. I put my first dessert in the freezer a couple of weeks ago. But my still-to-do list is daunting.
On Thursday, I began the day by making my favorite pumpkin bread. It took longer than I remember and produced more bowls, dishes and paraphernalia to wash than ever.
After that, Peter and I drove to our favorite farm store to get the very best vegetables and fruits. After all, Thanksgiving is the harvest holiday. Our next stop was Costco where we loaded the car with huge bags of every imaginable snack for our non-stop-eating grandsons, knowing full well that we will have to buy more during their visit.
I won’t go into how long it took to put everything away.
So here’s my question. How did I do all this when I had a full-time job and two children to take care of? Our Thanksgiving menu hasn’t changed.
