Thank goodness Thanksgiving is finally over. I feel like I have been planning this meal for months. Truthfully, I had planned out the meal pretty well. I pour over cookbooks looking for the perfect recipes to complete the meal. Once the recipes were selected, I planned the cooking method of each item and then mapped out the time everything needed to start cooking in order to be completed on time. The Sheriff was a big help today. He took care of the last minute cleaning and house preparation only coming in the kitchen when I called him. The kitchen was my territory today and it was in everyone's best interest to stay out of my way. The in-laws seemed pleased with the meal and I received many complements. All in all it was a successful day. However, my cold is back full force. I guess I over did it yesterday when I was feeling better and my body is letting me know today. There will be no 3 AM Black Friday shopping for me. I hit a couple of the sales online and purchased a couple of gifts but that craziness is not really my scene. The only deal I saw that was really something we would love to have is the grill the Sheriff has been eying since the summer that is $100 off at Lowe's. Unfortunately, neither one of us has any desire to fight the crowd to go buy it nor do we need to spend the money. Instead, my Black Friday will be spent chilling on the couch trying to fight this cold and watching the Iron Bowl. Sounds like a good day to me.
