Thanksgiving Eve!

The night before Thanksgiving may just be busier than the actual Thanksgiving event! Today consisted of cleaning, planning, and getting ahead on the holiday's cooking- namely breads, potatoes, and cranberry sauce.
The cranberry sauce is very simple. 1/2 cup OJ-Water mix, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 cups fresh cranberries. Heat the oj and sugar over med-high until the mixture is bubbling- add the cranberries and stir until most have burst. It's simple and fresh tasting- especially on top of the turkey!

Pumpkin Cranberry Bread- from Libby's!

Homemade dinner rolls- thank you all recipes!

Lamest yet- mini corn muffins- from a Jiffy Box... I should be ashamed but I was running out of energy!
All of this. in addition to the mashed potatoes made for a busy- exhausting evening!
Being ahead though should make tomorrow more enjoyable ( especially with Mimosas during the sister cookfest!)
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Check back for Updates on how it's going... and for anyone keeping tabs- it took 2 days in the fridge, and 4 hours in the sink (with water) to defrost the turkey- and I forgot the baster.... again....
