I love being a dinner party hostess. It's so fun getting all the food in order for the big meal. I just wish I had more space, more time and a bit more money so I could have these get togethers more often. Of course, I'd also have to find some friends to invite over too. I've always dreamed of doing that though and I make do with what I have.
I have a ton of cleaning and laundry on my to do list today. I went out shopping all day yesterday with my mom. We picked up the last minute items for the meal and spent a lot of time looking at books. That's a passion we both share. It's also a delight to see how excited my mom is to go a book store or even a store with a decent book selection. LOL, she's so cute. I hope I can share that love of books with my own child someday. It's a fun thing to share. Add to that a great deal on a book and it's almost like heaven!
I'd better get back to that laundry soon. I'm also defrosting the turkey in some cold water. I'm praying that my big bird will be thawed by late tomorrow night. I slow cook mine overnight so its super yummy.
Happy Thanksgiving !
