Every year I anticipate the first bite of smoked turkey and cornbread dressing. I look forward to all of the winter vegetables, extra slices of cheesecake and other sweet treats. And every year, approximately two weeks before Thanksgiving, I make turkey wings and at least one "Thaksgiving" side dish.
I don't know whether it's the cold weather that puts me in the mood, or just anxious taste buds. With two weeks to go, our house already smells like Thanksgiving and boy, am I excited!
This will be the first break since school started and I'm eager to relax with my family. That reminds me I have a lot of lists to write so that I can actually relax when the time comes. Timelines are especially important this time of year!
