And over the next few days, I'll be making pie crust ahead of time, baking corn bread for the stuffing, and so forth so I have less to do on the big day itself. This year, since we're being informal and doing a buffet service, I'm going to follow my hairdresser's advice and I'll roast the turkey the day before. She takes all the meat off the carcass and keeps it (the meat, not the carcass lol) covered with chicken broth in a large crock pot. Just have to heat it up on serving day. I like that idea! My kitchen is open to the dining area and I always hate having the carcass sitting out in plain view along with dirty pots and pans. If I cook the bird ahead of time, I can also dispose of the carcass ahead of time too! Win-Win! Also, I can refrigerate the drippings and get rid of the fat before I make the gravy on Thursday! Another Win! Yes, I like this idea!
In addition to grocery shopping, Don and I will make up the front door pots--it's so warm outside that nearly all the snow melted overnight, and it's foggy!--and of course, I want to get back to the sewing room. I so liked the feeling of finishing a project yesterday that I'm determined to get another finish today--Sister's Choice, get ready for your final borders!
That's about all the day holds for me. Maybe something unexpected--in a good way--will pop up. Who knows?
