preparing for thanksgiving

This year we are getting together with all our other friends who are also staying here for Thanksgiving.. and heading over to Adam & Camille's and having a HUGE feast.

Freeland offered for us to do the turkey.

which I dont mind because its actually not all that bad. (especially when its all youre making)

So, we woke up early (and by "we" - I mean Freeland) and got all the things we needed to start the Turkey. (then I woke up) and we got to work so we could start getting the Brine ready.

It was really exciting. Something about preparing it 24 hours in advance just makes it so much more worth it.

HUGE

But there's going to be a lot of people there

we dont have room in our fridge for it to fit so the brining process is taking place in a cooler (per martha's recommendation)

All the other times we've made the turkey - we have done it completely different so Im excited to see how it turns out. Crossing my fingers that it does actually turn out!

And oh my goodness, you should see all the food everyone else is bringing! (Like Cam's mom's Spinach Madeline!) Its going to be a lot of fun. And Im definitely going to need to wear stretchy pants tomorrow!
