I finally got myself to Target and ended up getting only two packs of diapers. One for the baby to be and one for my older baby. I also got some free sour cream. The store had the 8oz container for $1.12 and with the Target coupon and the manufacturer one I ended up getting paid $0.13 to take the sour cream from their shelves.
Then I went to the butcher to pick up our fresh turkey and it’s sitting in the brine at this very moment. Then I made the chocolate pecan pie and the worst part was making the crust. I really debated on buying refrigerated crust put couldn’t bring myself to do it. I had everything in my pantry to make it. But it really wasn’t that bad it was just a little time consuming, considering that the filling came together in less than five minutes. The dough had a couple of resting times in the fridge and that’s why it was time consuming.
I will post a final tally of how much I spent to feed 9 people on Thanksgiving day. All I can say right now is that I am already tired and all I did today was brine the turkey, make the broth for the gravy and the chocolate pecan pie. Tomorrow I am making more of that delicious Challah bread in the morning, cooking the veggies and the turkey. It should be fun, right?
Meanwhile, I would like to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving!
