A Day of Cooking

Today is Thanksgiving Eve if you will and for many of us that means... Cooking Day!  It really isn't so bad at my house.  Everyone picks their favorite dish and they are responsible for putting it together.  Husband fries the Turkey on Turkey Day and it all comes together quite nicely.  Everyone is happy with what is served and I am relaxed and have time to watch the parade on Thanksgiving Day.  If only I could get someone to watch the parade with me!

Please excuse the terrible lighting in these photo's.  I really do need to learn more about lighting.  I think  that will be a 2011 goal.  As you can tell I am just super casual today since I am going to be in the kitchen hanging out with the family.  Hopefully, not making multiple trips to the market because I forgot to get key ingredients.  You know what I am talking about, it happens to the best of us.

Cooking Day Ensemble:
Notice how clean the counter is, the boys haven't started their cooking projects yet!
Gotta get that cornbread in the oven for the dressing
I cook with wine…Sometimes I even put it in the food !

Ignore the earrings hanging on the shoes, obviously I didn't wear those today.  Forgot to take a picture of just the shoes.

That is the same necklace I wore yesterday with the leopard print sweater.  (I forgot to picture it yesterday)
