Brian and I have been so busy these last two weeks preparing for Christmas.
Christmas cards out✔️
Most presents wrapped ✔️
Fridge/ microwave cleaned✔️
Neighbor gifts ✔️
The last few days I have been cooking and cleaning preparing for our Christmas Eve feast. I’m making a traditional thanksgiving meal. Yesterday, I made an apple sage sausage stuffing (ready for the oven)
(The recipes picture, not mine) and fresh cranberry sauce.
Today I made rolls (in the freezer until I’m ready to bake in Thursday) the rolls turned out amazing then I put my naked turkey in her brine and cleaned out my fridge. This is my first time doing a brine. My friend swears by it. So we’ll see.
(Photo- Martha Stewart) the actual bird looks a lot less glamorous in my garage.
Christmas Eve day I’ll pick up Shelley from the airport and do mashed potatoes, gravy, pop the turkey in and make a salad – not in that order.
Oh. And Brian if your reading this. This meal is part of your Christmas presents. ❤️😘 get ready for leftovers.
I’ll have to update these pictures with my own after Thursday. 😬😆
