I am sorry I've been away. Us folk in America had Thanksgiving and then I've been puking. You've all managed ok but I see a few of you have gotten a bit loose so I'm back as your leader. So let's talk Turkey Day 2010.. round 1.
Round one consists of me cooking a bunch on Thursday, my mom contributing a turkey and dressing, and my Grandparents bringing a whole bunch of stuff too. My refrigerator is loaded down with enough leftovers to feed those poor assholes in Africa who refuse to just kill a fucking antelope or something but instead choose to beg every other country to help them.
First come, first serve, Africa.
But in between the cooking I get on the maniac cleaning phase. I was feeling a bit... um... homicidal towards Matt. You see, as I'm running around sweeping and mopping, and cleaning windows, and doing a total of TEN loads of laundry... then followed that with sorting out Jackson's toys upstairs... he's bitching about taking garbage out. Meanwhile, my hands are literally burning and peeling from all of the dishes I had done over two days so I took a break from that and sorted out the toy storage thing in our living room which has been annoying me to no end for months.
And then I organized my spice drawer.
Oh- here was my audience and helpers when cooking. I have a Transformer with a broken shooter gun thingie and a mostly naked Strawberry Shortcake. She's wearing panties and shoes and frankly- it's all you really need in life.
Here's me and my little brother Travis... he's two years younger but way bigger than me. He cracks me up and I love spending time with him.
Turkey (obviously-- and you can see it's dead body on my counter behind me in the picture)
Rosemary Garlic Roasted Red Potatoes (retard easy to make)
Green Bean Casserole (it's Matt's fav but I hate the smell of green beans.)
Cocktail Shrimp (drizzled with seasoning & lemon juice served with sauce sprinkled with diced cucumbers. I heard it was really good- but *gag* I don't do seafood)
Whipped Sweet Potatoes
Um... I think that's it. And we had a marshmallow dessert my Grandma makes, pumpkin pie and a turtle pie. The turtle pie is so fucking good. I'm glad I found that recipe again. MMMMM.
So that's my Thanksgiving.
I woke up this morning to do Black Friday shopping- more on that... tomorrow? Probably. ;)
