Wasn’t it just summer? And my birthday? And Halloween? How is Thanksgiving 2 weeks away? Life never seems to slow down, does it? Also, when will I stop asking questions?
The next two months are going to be busy – busy with work and acting classes and the holidays (and God as my witness, a visit to California Adventure to relish in the Christmas glory), and I’m hoping not to wear myself out too much to the point where I can’t enjoy it all.
But this year I plan to help my brother host Thanksgiving at his new house. I won’t have to cook most of it (though I’m hoping to one day soon try that venture), so hopefully things won’t be too stressful. If you are planning, it doesn’t hurt to get your menu/shopping out of the way sooner rather than later. And I am nothing if not a planner. Some helpful tips/recipes:

Cooking Schedule – Makes things easy, huh?
Thanksgiving Timeline – Don’t trust the one above? Here’s another that starts WEEKS before Thanksgiving.
Delicious Dinner Rolls – I make these every year, and everybody LOVES THEM.
