48 Days until Christmas…
Can you believe it? It feels like it was just summer…and now I’m getting out my winter coats, organizing plans for Christmas, decorating, and making Christmas Gift lists. It’s like I can barely wrap my head around the thought that Thanksgiving is in 3 weeks. That’s so mindblowing…where did this year go? Yikes!
Well, I’ve already decided what we’re doing for Turkey Day. Since it’s just the two of us, I’ll just do my own variation of the traditional foods…I’ll prepare them in a quick manner, probally cooking everything in about an hour. Last year I roasted two chickens (Tyler Florances’s recipe), made an Italian Sausage stuffing, gravy, mashed potatos and corn. I’ll do that again…although maybe this year I’ll try a pumpkin cheesecake recipe that I cut out of the new Food Network magazine…it’s the recipe from Cheesecake Factory. Yum!
I am looking forward to the season for a few reasons…first of all there is something comforting about the holidays. It reminds you of fond memories and makes you feel loved and all cozy. And the yummy foods. And my Mom will be coming out and I really miss her. Also the gifts are pretty sweet, too!
And you? What are you doing for Thanksgiving and Christmas? Have you even started thinking about it yet? Have your Christmas gift lists organized yet? Have you started shopping yet? Let me know!
