one of the things I love about Thanksgiving is the preparation…

today is my day for prepping… I’ve been making Thanksgiving dinner for decades and I’ve got it down to a science, lol…

I do miss my beloved’s help… besides making sure the house was clean and tidy ~ particularly the front closet, lol, he often made apple pie from scratch… yesterday a Facebook reminder from ten years ago mentioned the smell of apples being peeled for pie…

used the mandolin to slice up the rather tiny turnip… next up was getting potatoes peeled and cut up… I made extra so the boys can take home leftovers to get through the week…

then on to the stuffing… used two large loaves of bread because the boys requested “extra, extra”… hand ripped the bread and the mandolin worked great for the onions;-)…

table is nearly set although I couldn’t find the box of Thanksgiving decorations, lol…
