Sleep in a little bit because you kicked butt in the exercise department the day before. Come downstairs and be greeted by this from your husband.
Take care of your kid and then get started on the last of the prep work. Put together the brine and get the turkey breast in there as quickly as possible so it can get happy happy.
Make stuffing and realize that once that’s done, you’re in pretty good shape when dinner time rolls around.
Realize that you’re starving and finally take a break for some breakfast.
Have a basic yogurt mess with a huge red delicious and granola. Cheer for the fact you are drinking coffee with actual creamer in it. Holiday treat! Hooray for the holidays!
While you’re eating, your husband gets up and sleepily walks into the kitchen causing you to melt at his bedhead. Sleepy boys are sexah!
Watch some Food TV and wonder why they aren’t showing Thanksgiving shows. Discuss this with your husband who suggests that maybe Food TV thinks that by this point, it’s probably too late to talk T-day. Explain that it is never too late to talk T-day tips.
Continue to watch and chat for a little bit longer and talk about lunch options.
Smoothie, salad, and then rejoice at some vegan nuggets you were finally able to score at Whole Foods.

- 1C Unsweetened cranberry juice

After lunch, do another kitchen clean-up and then take your dog out for a walk. When you get back home, after a brief chat with the huz start getting dinner together. Pull the turkey outta the brine and get it in the roasting pan and rubbed down with some herbs and seasonings. Let it hang out for a bit to take some of the chill off.
Set the table for dinner later.
Put the stuffing in the oven and realize that while Ray-Ray is annoying, the concept of stuffin’ muffins is sound and utilize that concept with your own recipe.
Try not to laugh too hard at your husband who is acting so goofy. Be secretly happy that you’re the only one who gets to see this side of him.
Feed your kid first so that you and your husband can have a nice romantic dinner without distractions. Make sure your kid is waiting patiently by his food towel.
Your kid is allergic to turkey so he gets chicken instead. He prefers his stuffing to be extra crunchy and he also doesn’t care if his food touches, so please just go ahead and mix the veggies up together. Thanks for your cooperation.
Stand like a giant over your stove with your spastic ponytail and finish up the gravy so you can serve dinner.
Start to take a closer look at some of your dinner.
- Sweet potato casserole
- Mashed potatoes
- Green bean casserole
Before putting gravy on some things, sit back and enjoy the view for a minute. Be thankful for the fact that you are able to create such a meal, have a roof over your head, and have a hawt beast of a husband. Laugh at your hubs again when you realize that he’s contemplating his best plan of attack for dinner.
Hand the camera over when your husband says that he wants to take a picture of his plate.
Sit and chat with your hunny for a nice long time over dinner, then start kitchen clean-up. When you get to the muffin pan, curse the stuffin’ muffin concept and vow not to do that anymore.
Once the kitchen is fully cleaned up, plop down on the couch. Have your husband bring you a small glass of wine and snuggle with him while watching Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Realize you won’t be up very long and crash out completely content with your bellah full of yummy food.
