talk turkey with me

Thanksgiving is officially one week away.

Well, if you’re an American it is.  If you’re not, you may want to eat turkey just because it tastes good.  You know…grab a pie…have some mashed potatoes…

But if you’re an American, this is a big deal. 

I was at the grocery store this evening picking up beer and cookies (because who doesn’t need beer and cookies on a Thursday night?) and as I walked the aisles, I passed the stacks of stuffing mix, canned pumpkin, and assorted other Thanksgiving staples.  And let’s not forget the giant freezer bin filled with turkeys.

But with just a week away from the day, I have no idea what I’m doing, so I called my sister from the cereal aisle to compare notes. Were we planning a family get together or were we going solo? Which kids were going to be in town, and who gets Mom for the day? These are the things you have to figure out before you buy the big bird.

I don’t know what I’m doing yet…but I was wondering what everyone else had planned? Talk turkey to me. What are your plans for Thanksgiving?

Until the next time…I’ll be planning pies.
