Wow!!!! Thanksgiving is in three days.

We have a big thanksgiving planned. I have 30 Items on the menu. There is going to be lots of prior cooking and preparation. I like to enjoy Thanksgiving Day as much as I like to cook. I enjoy the holiday so much when I am not slaving over the stove every minute. It makes everything so much easier when I use my restaurant skills. I have owned a restaurant many years ago and for the food to come out fast, fresh, hot and delicious certain items must be prepared in advance. This is how I am able to get it done and still enjoy my holiday with Family and Friends.

Yesterday I made the Pumpkin bread, I boiled the eggs for deviled eggs, Cranberry sauce, Govatelli and put them in the freezer, spiced nuts and Apricots dipped in chocolate.

Over the next two days I have more to prepare ahead of time. I will be posting our entire Thanksgiving meal from start to finish.

Pumpkin Bread

Cranberry Sauce

Chocolate Dipped Apricots
