I meant to post this last night, but I ran out of time and energy. I’m not sure why I decided all of the following needed to be done yesterday-the day before Thanksgiving-but I’m willing to share my insanity with y’all. (Please ignore the horrid, yellow Formica countertops in the background.)
Beans in the crockpot for our family and some friends for dinnertime.
Baking to be done. Some from scratch; some not. I eat gluten free and I’ve found the best results come from the baking mixes.
Carrot cake recipe was my husband’s grandmother’s. The finished cake probably weighs at least ten pounds!
I forgot to take a photo of the lovely pan of cornbread we had with our beans.
In between mixing, baking, cooling, mixing frosting, and frosting, I worked on a couple of projects. I’ll share final results later when everything is in its proper place.
So, after a cake, cupcakes, cornbread, two (different) homemade frostings, cornbread, a batch of beans, some spray paint and four projects, I was ready to call it a night.
Right after I checked out the after Thanksgiving sales flyers!
Right now I’m off to make stuffing. That couldn’t be done a day ahead of time!
Blessings to everyone this Thanksgiving Day!
