Sometime over the next few days, I have to:
Get my phone fixed. I dropped it in a cup that had a bit of water in it when I was taking the charger out while doing other things. Not good.:::SIGH::: Ah well. I guess it's going to be a slow blogging day tomorrow...
Go shopping for thanksgiving (don't worry, we already have a turkey!). Our menu plan for now:Yellow split pea soup. Really good, which is amazing considering I hate everything that's in it. Serach didn't want to have pumpkin soup - but this looks remarkably similar.Get a haircut (and shave). Or Serach may just kill me.
Stuffing. Which I've never had...
Salad bar, with a few different types of combinations available. Hard to explain... basically, there's the typical salads for the boring people and then the ones that are a bit different that most of our guests love. And they're large males between 19-23 years old, usually. And, before anyone asks, everything we serve is legally acquired at Wasserman's or the like... if you don't count their highway robbery prices as illegal.
Cranberry sauce. With oranges and pineapples or something, unless I switch recipes. It's really good, though.
Sweet potato/regular potato concoction. I'm not sure, Serach says to trust her. Apparently, this is a clause somewhere in our kesubah or something. I was just going to do baked sweet potato (and I still might... hehehe). But her recipe sounds good, too...
Chocolate pecan pie. Yum.
One friend is bringing another dessert, while another may be bringing something else for the meal. One guy who works at Dougie's in Teaneck may bring over wings after his shift, too. We still might be making some other things, too.
HAHA - okay, I knew I left something out: TURKEY. Nice, big, fat, juicy turkey.
Others that don't look like they're making the cut: Mashed potatoes. Cranberry crunch. Apple strudel. Pumpkin soup. :( Can't make everything...
But I have a question for everyone... how do you make your turkey?! We're probably going to do it one way, but I'm curious how everyone else does it. I'm referring more to what you put on it than how you cook it, but asking both, I guess.
Take an advanced accounting midterm. Which is on 4 chapters I haven't studied - or read - yet. And the test is in 17 hours.
Buy stuff on Black Friday. Which apparently is the day that people go absolutely nuts buying lots of stuff at outrageously low prices... then turn around and sell them 3 months later on E-Bay.
Buy a new light. After our old one fell over and busted, and can't stand up straight anymore. Otherwise, we'll be sitting in very dim light for Thanksgiving. What's better: Indirect lighting from track lights, or getting another lightpole-type light?
EDIT: Edit the Blogosphere article. The editor needs it to put out the Chronicle. But thankfully, a professor I'm friendly with hasn't given in his yet, either. So I'm safe for now. /
Oh yes. My in-laws are coming for Shabbos, too.
