You can attribute my radio silence this past week to the fact that I was nominated to host Thanksgiving yesterday for my in-laws. Which means this not-so Betty Crocker had to figure out how to make a full dinner for seven people with no previous experience.
I also burnt macaroni-and-cheese the night before and filled my house with smoke. It was reassuring.
My mother provided me with this “Bible” last week, and I literally took notes. And studied. And made two huge grocery lists.
I’m just going to put this out there – I’m normally a total domestic failure. However, I managed with pull together a pretty dang awesome Thanksgiving meal. Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, noodles, green bean cassarole, corn souffle, homemade rolls, and even a pumpkin pie. A turkey was in my oven people. I have officially hit wife status, a mere 6.5 years into my marriage.
I think my family was impressed.
Okay, so my mother came to supervise me in my own kitchen the day before. Sue me.
In other news, you may want to tune in to this little blog on Monday. I’m not going to say that I have a crazy awesome giveaway for my readers, but I may have a crazy awesome giveaway for my readers. Hint, hint. Wink, wink.
Happy (belated) Thanksgiving to all!
