Fully stocked and ready for battle
Sunday, November 22, 2015
Another indoor club soccer game and the kid scored her team's only goal. They tried their best, but still lost - a fair outcome so not surprising or all that disappointing. We let the kid choose dinner, which is our custom after games.
We braved the crowds at Costco after the game - it was a bit crazy but I thought it would be even worse tomorrow. Then after dinner it was Trader Joe's, and finally the local supermarket. We are fully loaded up now, ready not only for the season's first snow predicted for tomorrow, but also for Thanksgiving.
There's a fresh turkey in the fridge, as well as a turkey-free loaf for the two lacto-vegans joining us for dinner. I have boxes of several frozen vegetarian appetizers, and lots of fresh veggies as well as egg-free snacks, both sweet and salty. I just downloaded a recipe for egg-less banana nut bread that I'll make for dessert. So ... I think I'm in decent shape for Thanksgiving, at least food-wise. The hardest part will be the three days of cleaning ahead of us!
And I bought 3 dozen eggs for the work holiday party. It's not for nearly 3 weeks, but I read online that fresh eggs are harder to peel for deviled eggs, so I thought to buy them now so I'll have older (but still unexpired!) eggs when they are needed.
Okay, so on second thought, the hardest part won't be the cleaning. It will be the staying away from the nuts and crackers before the holiday!
