Check back for the play-by-play of how I'm prepping for my busy day...and please visit Tuesday at the Table with Debbie to see what others are planning for their table.  
Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday,


  1. OMGosh, how many will you be at dinner? Do you need any help eating all of this? Notice I'm not offering to help cook. ;-)

  2. Turkey, ham, AND Rib Roast - wow - sounds delish!!! Your menu sounds traditional but personal - the very best kind! Will be watching for the play-by-play! And thanks for linking up, Susan!!

  3. Heavens - are you expecting an Army??!!!!! Are you making the jello with the shredded carrots and crushed pineapple? I bet your mother had the same jello cookbook mine had from the 1960s! :-) What a great way to remember your mother.

  4. You've got me beat with the sheer volume of proteins. We're just doing a turkey. And to be very honest, I like the cranberry sauce that still has the ridges on it from the can!

  5. Wow! That's quite the menu! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!
