I love Thanksgiving, and am very excited that we're doing the big dinner at our house this year. It's always fun to go visit family for Thanksgiving, of course, but there's something very cool about cooking the meal myself. Probably something to do with left-overs.
I've already started cooking. I made homemade applesauce yesterday, and my *favorite* cranberry-pear sauce (oh, I love cranberries!), which is so much better after it sits in the fridge for a few days. I made fudge too, but it didn't work - it came out more like frosting, and even though it tastes fine, you can't cut it into little squares. Oh well. I also made two loaves of pumpkin bread, but they'll be gone long before Thursday (in fact, we finished one loaf today). On Wed, I'm planning to make 3 pies (apple, cherry and pumpkin).
We've invited a few Turkish exchange officers to come for Thanksgiving dinner too - it'll be fun to share the evening with them.
