Strangely enough, I’ve had the last two week’s meal plans done, but never got around to publishing them…huh.
Anywho, it’s another “Eat Down the Pantry” week leading up to Thanksgiving. I found a LOT of eggs marked down for quick sale today, so we brought 4 dozen of them home. We now have 2 dozen boiled eggs for snacks and we *will* have a ton of cookie dough in the freezer after I get it made. I was going to do that this afternoon, but after church, grocery shopping, dishes, driving 40-ish minutes to find the corduroy that I need to make a bag*, and then serving at the 6 p.m. service, I’m a little beat. As I’m writing this, I’m planning to finish up (and publish!) this meal plan, and then join my husband watching the Chronicles of Narnia while I cut out a few more violins.
It’s my first year cooking “the” turkey. This will be interesting! I’ve cooked a turkey before, but never one this big. Any tips or tricks?

*I’ve started making and selling bags! The bags are intended to be either shoulder or cross body bags and they have a violin cut out of contrasting fabric sewn onto the side. I’ll post a link to the etsy store when I finally get some pictures up/bags listed, but I’ve already got two orders and I’m super excited!
