Thanksgiving Dinner - part one

Thanksgiving Dinner - Phase One Complete!  Thank God for no fires. 

Ro and I began the first phase of our "made-from-scratch" Thanksgiving Dinner this morning.  As you know (if you read my blog), Canadian Thanksgiving was last weekend.  Ro, unfortunately, was involved with the opening of the new Outback Steakhouse so we couldn't have dinner the day of.  But that's ok because his family doesn't know the difference anyway.

So!  This is my VERY FIRST TIME making Thanksgiving Dinner.  Actually, it's probably my first time making everything on my menu (which I realize is usually a big no-no but, as I mentioned earlier, they won't even know the difference hehehe) 

On the menu is:

Raw veggies and dip
Devilled Eggs
Cheese Ball (I hope)

Main Course
Chester (who found turkey at this time of year?? I can't...)
Garlicky Green Beans and Mushrooms
Mashed Potatoes
(I feel like I need coleslaw...)

'North American' Apple Pie


Today we got the desserts done and the veggies prepped and that all took like 6 hours.
Tomorrow it's up early to make stuffing, squash, potatoes, steam the beans, make the cheese ball, finish the devilled eggs, cook the CHESTER. 

Jesus.  I'm having anxiety.  I think I need to get back out there and keep cooking.

So tired... but must... keep... cooking....

More to come!


  1. Hey where the hell's my invite, lol

  2. Good for you!! I do US Thanksgiving here too. Don't be too intimidated by the cooking and remember, no one you are cooking for knows what it is supposed to taste like! Since US Thanksgiving is about a month later, I cna usually find turkeys, since Brazil is gearing up for Christmas. Chesters are just fine and pretty tasty.

  3. Wow, you're brave! Let me know how it goes, maybe I can attempt this when my Thanksgiving comes around...however, just the thought of spending 6 hours in my kitchen makes me feel claustrophobic and panicky..
    P.S. I finally started my blog!
