The day before.

Ron and I have always had Thanksgiving together. Even that first year, in my crappy Urbana, Illinois apartment, with my runny fruit salad and his dumpy rolls. We've always cooked, whether we had friends or family joining us, if we're joining friends, and even if it's just the two of us. Well this year it's the four of us, and the food's already a-cookin'!

Carrot souffle is one of our faves. This year I'm putting the stuffing in the crockpot and the potatoes in the microwave. Made some yummy (ok we might have sampled them) sweet potato biscuits for breakfast because, hey, you might as well start putting all that good stuff in your belly first thing in the morning. If you have some sweet potatoes you're not going to use, get busy on this easy recipe. You'll thank me.

And what is my little helper up to? Watching cranberries pop. She's got a little Thanksgiving surprise for you tomorrow, so gather the family 'round the ole 'puter in between the 85th and 86th lame marching band in the Big Parade. We promise, it'll totally make your day.
