It’s Thanksgiving week! We’re getting down to the wire and now is when all the big prep starts to take place. Today is my last “free” day, starting tomorrow I’ll be cooking each day all the way until Thanksgiving day.
After that I’m not cooking again until at least Saturday!
Maybe. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.
This year I’m making my own stock. I use a lot of chicken stock here at the HQ, however we do not eat enough meat for us to keep ourselves supplied with our own stock. I’ve been saving up bones in my freezer so that I would eventually have enough to make stock.
I finally have enough! Whoo!
Here’s a run down of how I’m spending the week:
- School work
- Pick up turkey
- Make stock
- Chop veggies
- Get wine in fridge
- Prep dinner for today and Wednesday
