I’m continuing with the Thanksgiving tradition post. Only two more days left to cook. You will see my Thanksgiving dinner step by step, from beginning to end.
Today I am posting about how I prepare for Thanksgiving without standing in front of the stove all day. The trick is to prepare the food in steps. For example, Thanksgiving Day I can get my vegetable stuffing done in the time it takes to boil water. A couple of days before Thanksgiving I sauté onions, mushrooms and celery, with all the seasonings. Now I can put it in a container with two tablespoons of butter and save it for Thanksgiving Day. When it is time to make the stuffing all I will have to do is take 2 cups of Turkey broth from the turkey, add it to the pre sautéed vegetables and Pepperidge farm stuffing mix. That easy!!!

The Chocolate dipped Pumpkin Cookies are a very simple sugar cookie, spiced up with pumpkin and spices. They are good plain or with a great chocolate center.
Looking forward to tomorrow.
