A little “bird” told me, Thanksgiving is almost here! I can share with you, for the first time ever my husband I are cooking Thanksgiving. We somehow convinced my family to let us cook, brroohoohaa. But seriously, we love to cook. The engineer in my husband is meticulous – he has a PPT presentation on the best way to cook a bird. Food Network’s Alton Brown has a recipe even the Iron Chefs use, and we decided we are going to give it a go. We’ll split up some of the side dishes with family, but I will definitely be baking and doing some myself. I have a pumpkin and pecan pie in my future. Mmmhmm. We luhve to cook and this is such a treat.
There are a few surprises going on this week and now that we agreed to cook, it is with sad news I have to announce we can’t do the Turkey Trot. I feel like a turkey because it was my idea, but the race ends too late for us to get the bird in the oven on time. Bummed. Trust me, really not too happy. It’s one of those things, I can’t sacrifice our first-ever attempt at Tday dinner because selfishly wanting to stick to my run. I do plan to run team Renegade and do our own mini Tater Trot or something.
Our Thanksgiving recipe will include a morning run followed by two dinners. Phew!
How is everyone getting ready for the holidays this week? You going to see family or having family come to you?
