Thanksgiving! Part 1

Was thinking this was a "make-up post" since I missed Friday being sick and miserable, but then I decided maybe I should just blog when I feel like it. It totally goes with my randomness and prevents those days when I just don't know what to blog about or having to wait till Friday when I have a great idea, then I forget that great idea by Friday.

Thanksgiving is my FAVORITE holiday(nobody with the give-mes or I deserves) this year I was just not feeling it. I saw an ad for Tur-Duc-Hens for a store that has a location near J's school. I have always wanted to try one so I thought after I drop him off I will run get one...well they didn't have any not really surprised not an LA thing I am sure. First thing I saw was cranberries! Picked them up and read the bag...decided they were grown too far away for me to buy them, all the way across the country, the LONG way, not thrilling when I know they grow them just one state away. Saw a free range turkey that called to me "Pick me, take me home, I will make the bellies of your family happy!" so I plucked it out of the fridge and brought it home. Just a turkey wouldn't do and we were in desperate need of TP so E and I ran to the store near our house. I wandered ALL the isles they rearranged AGAIN about a month ago and I am still not used to it. grabbed some canned cranberries to go with the Turkey(would you believe I never tried them till a few years ago, because they looked too much like beats...that I tried in like 1st grade and didn't like?) Walked around the store 3 times the third time I finally found some french fried onions for green bean casserole(I was determined to find them, this is our third year here and we have been living without them and the always delicious green bean casserole) then on my way to the checkout I grabbed a box to make stuffing...I hate it but decided its selfish not to make it because I don't like it. I am so excited now I don't know how I will wait till Thursday!!!
