Green Room - Week 5 - Day 7

Happy Thanksgiving, for those of you who celebrate it!

For those who don't, thanks for having us over! Here, have some blankets!

***

What are you thankful for today? What is gobbling your turkey? What's mashing your potatoes?

Personally, I am thankful that we have a poll out there - http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/500732.html - with some terrific entries. Thank you to everyone who has shown up this season, and for all the you do!

*sets out virtual Thanksgiving dinner for you*

lucky duck! I actually don't mind cooking. It's the fact that I end up cleaning up as well that bothers me

Thankful for friends, family, and everything pretty much.

We already cooked the bird last night, peeled an cut potatoes and prepped the Yorkshire pudding batter. Sweet potatoes are baked and mixed with butter, so just warming those and cooking the sides to do. Mum had to work today, but only five hours, so off to get her soon.

I'm going to bed early tonight cause I have to be at work at 4 tomorrow (ugh), but I'll probably start reading entries when I get home. Depending on how tired I am.

(obviously my work experiences reflected my entry this week.)

Hope everyone who celebrates has a good one, and those who don't, have a nice, slow Internet day :D

Thankful for having a super awesome family- both mine and my husband's.

Today is lunch with his godparents, dad, brother, and a slew of people I don't know. It's sure to be a blast, despite my usual anxiety for party-type situations :)

I'm also thankful that we are finally set up to really truly finish unpacking and cleaning the whole apartment this weekend!

Holidays can be really stressful for those who have social anxiety disorder.
I've been able to hide out upstairs for the most part and not have to be emursed in the crowd.
I will still have to brave it some more for the pumpkin pie. I like pumpkin pie.

Have a great stuff-yourselves-full-of-food Day, Americans! I'll be over here having my customary cup of tea and a biscuit instead. :D

:looks up from kitchen counter:

Happy Turkey if you're celebrating! Or Happy Thursday!

Right now I'm in the middle of making my awesome stuffed mushrooms. I made the apple-cranberry crisp last night. I still have to make spinach dip, but that's easy-peasy.

We're going to be having our own Thanksgiving over the weekend sometime. I've only cooked a turkey by myself once, and that was years ago. This is going to be interesting...

I got my turkey pre-cooked from our supermarket, along with about half the trimmings. I just need to reheat it in the oven for about 1.5-2.0 hours, and make a few side dishes. Enjoy your Turkey Day!

Mmmm... stuffed mushrooms!

Just wanted to pop in and wish all who celebrate a happy turkey day!

We shall eat our feast, watch movies and then I need to do a fill in show on Mushroomfm.com this evening. So the day is full.

I hope all are well!

Kizzy is making Stuffed Mushrooms, so if your Mushroomfm.com suddenly becomes just fm.com, blame her!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Bruno!

Thankful for a fresh start, and for being able to come back home.

Everyone's coming to our place today. I'll check in later just so y'all know we survived. :)

Happy Turkey Day Everybody.

I was lol amused last evening watching Survivor when Coach was talking with Cochran. He was deeming each contestant a Greek god or goddess based on their personalities. He said Ozzy was Narcissus! Did anyone else see that? I thought, " Shoot, that would've been some sweet for an entry last week!"

Nov. 24th, 2011 03:56 pm (UTC)
LOL -- I caught that ;) It didn't even occur to me to parlay that into an entry.

Happy Turkey!

Of course Cochran had a point when he said that Zeus eventually ate his children...

I am thankful that we did all the cleaning last night. Now all I have to do is get the mulled cider going and make the potatoes, then I can sit back and watch the parade. Or Dexter. (I'm only 7 episodes behind right now, geez.)

Happy Thanksgiving, or if that's not your bag today, Happy Thursday!!

Don't mull over the cider too long!

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it. I made my spiked cranberry orange sauce and candied sweet potatoes which were my two contributions. Now I have to clean up the mess from the sweet potatoes last night. I don't know how a simple task got so messy. I should probably also take a shower so as to be clean for our early dinner.

We're having turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, candied sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, cole slaw, and apple and pumpkin pies. Too bad we ate one of the other desserts last night. lol.

That said I have to be thankful for the food and home I do have, and for the friends, and pray for those who do not.

I'm thankful for Idol to helping stretch my writer's wings.
I'm thankful for my family, chosen family, and friends near and far.
I'm thankful that I have a house to live in that is warm and comfortable.
I'm thankful for my four cats, even when they leave "suprises" on the floor.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I'm thankful for my new job, my amazing boyfriend, his awesome family for being so great and letting me into theirs, my incredibly hardworking dad, and for the fact that I love words.

I've already made the carrot pudding, the TurBoDucKen is in the oven, and we just have to make more desserts, roast garlic for the mashed potatoes and clean.

Yay new job!

Carrot pudding? That sounds interesting. What is the Bo in TurBoDucKen?
