Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you have a day planned that brings you happiness. For us it is an early dinner and then the EAGLES play this afternoon. The hubster is past happy it is like an extra Sunday for him. A day off, a full blown turkey dinner and football whats not to love.
Since it is only the 3 of us we will be having a turkey breast. Even that seems a little big. We will have plenty of left overs for sandwiches.
I will put the turkey in the oven in a few hours, the soup is already made and it came out as good as I was hoping. I will tell you more about that Saturday. I have a 5 lb give or take Sweet potato that I am going to bake and the green bean casserole is a must or Mom and I won't know we are eating Thanksgiving dinner. Green bean casserole is a tradition that must never end.Hubby says I can stop there but it isn't a turkey dinner without stuffing so while stuffing isn't my strong suit I will give it a try and make it from scratch. Just because it is just us 3 that doesn't mean we can't have a good dinner packed full with tradition. ( every time I write the word Tradition I hear the beginning lines to the Fiddler On Roof.)
The pie is coming from the Amish shop in the farmers market so it is sure to be fresh and good. I am hopping for peach but I bet he gets apple. We just had pumpkin pie at the start of the month and the soup is pumpkin soup so I opted for a fruit pie. I am making myself hungry.
Other then making dinner which pretty much makes itself I plan on doing nothing more today then to curl up on my comfy couch in front of a roaring fire and read my book maybe watch a movie. Mostly however I am going to be thankful for my wonderful life and family.
The pictures scattered through out this post are a few of my favorites from this past weeks assignments and my walk in Center City last Saturday. I took what I call a 3 hour pleasure tour in the city with my camera and came home one tired happy camper.
