My Thanksgiving Plan-2013

Our Thanksgiving plans this year included being in Mississippi right now.  But...we're not.  Our trip ended up getting postponed.  On Sunday we made a quick revision plan for cooking our own meal here at home.  Here it is:

Monday:  morning-make menu for the week's meals and create a complete shopping list
                 afternoon-shop for all of the food for the week (this was clearly the plan for  
                                   most of the city of Morgantown, since everyone seemed to be shopping
                                   yesterday afternoon.)

Tuesday:  Make dough for rolls
                 Make Candied Sweet Potatoes
                 Make Cranberry Sauce
                 Cook pumpkin for pie filling (I have a little pie pumpkin that I got from our farm
                    membership this year)

Wednesday:  Make pies!
                         -2 pumpkin
                         -2 apple
                         -1 pecan
                     Brine the Turkey

Thursday:    Cook the Turkey
                    Make gravy
                    Make stuffing
                    Make green bean casserole

We also planned several snacks for Thursday.  The kids are going to make Chex mix, Peter is going to make hot wings and they'll put together a vegetable tray and a fruit tray.  We'll put all of the snacks out around lunch time and munch through the afternoon while we play board games, finish all of the cooking details and read and color.  We plan to serve the meal around 4:30-5:00 pm.

I have no idea if I'll get all of this done.  It's a nice idea.  :-)  I'll let you know how it turns out. What's your plan?
