Here it is… the Sunday before Thanksgiving. I got a great deal on a 24 1/2 pound turkey at Price Chopper for only 39 cents a pound. That’s the holiday bird. And I got another 15 lb at the same time for the freezer. There was a limit of two, so I stopped at Hannaford for one of their 40 cent Marvel turkeys about 13 lbs. While I was there, I got mincemeat, pudding mix, a large peanut butter tub, eggnog, and a bunch of other stuff I needed for the holiday. Now I’m working on a list for the traditionals that we don’t have yet. I love those cheap turkeys, though.
Lisa is in charge of the pies. She makes the best pie crust, a skill I have never succeeded in developing. We’ll have pumpkin, cherry, apple, mincemeat, and blueberry for baked pies. Then some chocolate cream and banana cream. We get both cans of whipped cream, and cool whip. Some like one and some like the other.
I make my grandmother’s butter rolls for just about every holiday meal. A double batch for Thanksgiving. I should make them more often because they are such a hit with everyone, but just having them for the holidays makes them a little more special.
