Thanksgiving is a Week Away

Thanksgiving Day is next week and I have been picking up things that I will need to cook for my Thanksgiving feast.  I can remember when I used to cook, from scratch, big, huge Thanksgiving meals with lots of side dishes and deserts because that’s what my family had when I was growing up.  However, my mom was a stay at home mom and my dad actually loved helping my mom cook for the holidays.  Mom and dad would plan the meal together as a team.

For example, I love mashed potatoes from scratch and it’s actually super simple to make but I absolutely hate peeling potatoes and Mr. Man doesn’t like peeling potatoes and my son doesn’t like peeling potatoes so homemade mashed potatoes is off the menu and they don’t mind eating boxed mashed potatoes.

Don’t stress yourself over cooking for Thanksgiving because it is just one day, it’s more important to enjoy the day spending time with family and friends.
