Pretty laid back day for us today. For the first time in years, we did not host. We did not go anywhere, either. It ended up just being me, Tara, and Audrey – but that was alright. I found a small turkey at Chuck’s Produce (9.something lbs.) and we just downscaled everything else. We brined it with a seasoning we found from New Seasons, and it turned out perfectly moist and delicious. For the sides, we made mashed potatoes, creamed corn, balsamic and bacon Brussels sprouts, and potato rolls. Oh, and deviled eggs. Currently I am turning the leftovers into soup – another longstanding tradition. I’m looking forward to digging into that around 8:00.
It was a great day to stay inside, as it rained nonstop all day long and never made it above 50 degrees. My kind of weather!
I didn’t get a lot of words written today, but I’m not beating myself up. It was a holiday, after all. And I’ve got tomorrow off, so I’m hoping to make up for that then.
