Shorts weather in November!

Well, now I'm sick. I hope it goes away in time for Thanksgiving! My family is coming to sunny SoCal to celebrate with us this year. And it is sunny! Yesterday we had a high in the 80's! Time to break out the shorts! The Santa Ana winds are back, bringing with them hot, DRY air but who knows if it will still be warm by the time my family gets here. My dad wants to go to the beach. Cold! But if the Santa Anas are still blowing it might actually be nice.

I was hoping to do some Thanksgiving shopping today, but the way I'm feeling I don't really want to haul the boys (who both still have coughs and runny noses) around the grocery store. Maybe I can convince my hubby to come home early and go shopping for me. I was planning to prepare the pie crusts and freeze them tomorrow, but I can't do that until I go shopping! Arrrgghh! Why is it that you always get sick at the most inopportune times?!

For any of you that are interested, I have made a cookbook especially for Thanksgiving Dinner. It has recipes and instructions for the turkey, stuffing, cranberries, sides, and of course pies. If you'd like a copy, here's a link. Here's another link for the timeline that goes with it. (They are both Word documents, so you'll need to have Word installed on your computer to view them.) Sorry, no okra recipes this time!

Under the weather,
Alberta

Your recipe/shopping list is awesome! When the time comes for me to be in charge of my own Thanksgiving, I hope I can be on top of it as you are. If you are a list person (like me, give me a list and highlighers and I'm happy!), you should have Liz email you her excel packing list (based on a Word packing list I created and emailed to her).
