Thanksgiving is coming

Thanks everyone. I really do feel better today. Gabriel is getting over it too. It was just the first time in our 3 year marriage that either of us had even talked about the thought of a possibility of cheating.

Last night Gabriel was going to be home late anyway. So I put the kids to bed early, made a really nice dinner, lit a million candles, turned off the lights, and put on a sexy top. I have never done anything like that before and it was really nice.

I think you all are right. My libido may be returning. One can only hope, right...

-----oOo-----

Thanksgiving is coming right along. Planning big meals and get-togethers, and trying new recipes and flavors in food gives me a high. I know, I'm weird. I started a blog just for food and recipes, so this one won't get all filled up. Especially for those who hate it when people share recipes. C'mon I know there is at least one of you out there...

Note: I was going to link my recipes below with my new blog, but Blogger is #%@&ing with me. I only got one linked. Blah.

I did my shopping today. After I get off the internet, I must start my cleaning which will continue tomorrow. Saturday I will cook and peel and chop and prep and wash in hopes that I won't have THAT much to do on Sunday. It is really screwing with my mind to have Thanksgiving on a Sunday. I will be messed up for months.

Here is my menu.

Appetizers (served noonish):
Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms
Chex Mix
Chex Muddie Buddies
Chicken Cheese Spread with crackers (MIL bringing)

Main Meal (served 2-3 pm):
Roast Turkey
Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
Sausage Stuffing
Green Beans Almondine
Cranberry sauce (homemade, of course)
Orange Fluff
Oven Rolls
Olive tray (my mom will bring)

Dessert:
Brandy Pecan Pie
Classic Pumpkin Pie
Homemade Whipped Cream

Drinks:
Rhubarb Punch (homemade from my garden this summer, canned in my basement)
Mogan David, Blackberry and Concord
Coffee

Oooo, I am so excited. The main meal is classic of my late Grandma, who I adored and who I got my infectious love of cooking from.

On a side note, Blogger is completely f#$@ing with me again today. Enough that I am so PO'd I am just moving to Wordpress.com. I have had enough, people. If I had time, I would do it this afternoon. Expect to update your blogrolls within the nest week or 2. Urghhhhhh.

Also wordpress.com will only be temporary until I can get some seed money to buy a domain name and use wordpress.org. Chelle, together you and I will rule the world. Ahhahahahahahahaha!! *evil genius laugh*

On that scary note, TTFN.
