Day before Thanksgiving?

Today is the day before Thanksgiving? Who would have guessed it with temps in the mid 60's? It feels more like the day before Easter. I'll be busy today making dishes ahead of time for our family meal tomorrow. Right now I have a delicious pumpkin cheesecake in the oven. (our house is so hot we have the front door hanging open.) Later I'll be making the sweet potato suffle, greenbeans, and cornbread dressing. All my favorite foods in one meal. Yum! I love thanksgiving. None of the pressure that comes with Christmas giftgiving but all of the fun family type traditions. This year it's back at my Mom's house. I think my favorite part of the day is the day before preperations that my mom and I always share. The best part is just spending the day cooking with my mommy. Then tomorrow before everyone comes, we only have to slide the turkey into the oven, and time the side dishes accordingly. That takes so much of the pressure off of her. I'm glad to help.

Happy Thanksgiving!
