I’m not quite. See, we had all these plans – we were going to spend Thanksgiving with our best friends that have a little girl Emma’s age and each make half of the dinner. I was really looking forward to it… then the plague hit at the same time as the cold snap here. First, about two weeks ago John got the flu. Then Emma had sniffles and a sore throat (my poor baby) that came on at the end of last week. And THEN John got sick again with something else and lost his voice, has had a low fever every day, and has been coughing. I managed to get by without catching anything, but still have felt not great. So rather than go cough all over our friends this Thanksgiving (lol), we’re going to try to reschedule the big dinner. I’m so sad!
Today we made a “quick trip” to Costco to get the groceries we need for Thanksgiving dinner (even though it’s been put off) since we didn’t have a chance to do it before. We have pretty much no food and I couldn’t face a Thanksgiving day without something yummy. It was a mad-house! I love Costco, though – don’t you? Especially around the holidays. I just always wish I had more money when I go, lol.
Anyway, here’s our planned Thanksgiving dinner, for when my friend Erin and I DO get together…
(I can at least dream about the food…)
Mashed Potatoes & Gravy
Sweet Potato Souffle
Crab Dip & Crackers
So I was going to make the pumpkin cheesecake from scratch but guess what? Costco had pumpkin cheesecakes. And I was going to have to buy extra cream cheese anyway but it just seemed like a better deal to buy the huge cheesecake there. I’m just not sure I can wait until Erin and I get together to get into it… it seriously invaded my dreams during my nap today and I’m not even kidding.
Sooo… what are you Thanksgiving plans?
It looks like we’ll be laying low. I am happy to at least have my husband and child home with me. And although there will be sniffles and coughing, I’ll remember to be thankful for our general health and for the food we were able to buy.
And I’ll definitely be thankful for pumpkin cheesecake. ;-)
