I did it! I just prepared an entire Thanksgiving feast myself! I thought it turned out pretty decent, considering I have never cooked a turkey before and so did my husband. I did cheat a little...I put the turkey in the crock pot. I know, I know it sounds pretty, well, gross. But it actually was tender and juicy and it fell off the bone, literally. (I also took the easy way out by making stove top stuffing.) All in all it was a tasty meal, if I do say so myself. But I can't take all the credit thankfully, Adam helped clean up afterwards.
This will be our first, and last, Thanksgiving with just the two of us. Sweet baby Krause (we'll announce her name as soon as she's born) will be here before we know it. In 10 days to be exact, if she comes when the doctor predicts. We definitely missed being with our families or even friends, for that matter, this year. But when you can't make a seven or nine hour drive home because you might have a baby on the side of the road you make your own Thanksgiving memories. I am very thankful we have each other to spend Thanksgiving with. Adam put up Christmas lights, while I made the dinner. Later we're going to see "Four Christmases" (with Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn). All in all it's been a fun, relaxing Thanksgiving. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family.
