After listening to a radio show this morning, I wondered how many of us use prepared foods. Especially for the holidays. They asked people to call in and tell what they “cheat” with. The biggest thing people admitted to was the stuffing. I’ll admit that I use that stuff only once in a while. Maybe only a few times a year. But making a whole turkey from scratch, it wouldn’t occur to me to use anything other than my own homemade stuffing. I should also admit that I’m not really a huge fan of stuffing to begin with but I do like what was passed down to me.
I make real whipped cream. I have to use a glass bowl and put the beaters in that and freeze them for an hour or so before I want to whip it up. That’s what the MIL did and it was the best so we still do it that way. We will have real squash and real mashed potatoes and real gravy. Our turkey will be frozen but hey, that’s real. I can really only think of the cranberries that will be canned. I can’t stand them and neither can my kids so my mom brings a can. The rolls will also be gotten from a bakery.
What’s on your plate for Thanksgiving and how much “help” do you have with prepared foods?
