If you are cooking Thanksgiving dinner, you really should have your turkey in the fridge, thawing.... assuming it is frozen.

Your menu should be complete.

Most of your shopping should be done.... except for the stuff that needs to be consumed within a day, or two, of purchase.

That being said.... I really should complete my menu.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I know what I want. And, I have most of the stuff planned and purchased. BUT, I haven't had the time to work on my cookbooks, as much as normal. SO.... there might be a few unexpected dishes that show up. :-)

So far, this is what I have:

2 turkeys (one smoked, one roasted)
mashed potatoes
sweet potato pie
green beans
broccoli and rice casserole
macaroni and cheese
cranberry conserve
yum yum salad
fruit salad
pecan pie
pumpkin pie
3-4 other desserts
and 3-4 appetizers

I am doing all, but the mac-n-cheese, taters, sweet potato pie, yum yum salad, and fruit salad. I will make 2 appetizers and the pumpkin and pecan pies. Hubby is prepping the smoked turkey, while I do the roasted turkey.

So.... speaking of that, I'd better make sure my fridge in the garage is on and the turkeys are thawing.... instead of rotting. I *think* hubby turned on the fridge... if not? yikes! We will have 2 rotten turkeys to toss.

I swear you are missing something off of your menu....don't you always do some mexican or Tex-mex something that no one else gets the recipe to?
Tell me I'm not going crazy....

No.... You are not crazy... I just forgot it. Red chile. But, it isn't Tex-Mex.... It is more internal. I gotta make it tomorrow!!!!
