In accordance with my monstrous, scroll-like Thanksgiving to-do list, I am making ahead as much of the feast as possible. This (hopefully) will result in an organized and sane feast day. It worked last year, that's all I can say.

So, I've been making pie crust.

Complete with stars. Don't you know pie crust tastes better when it's cut into dozens of little stars?

Also, cranberry relish. Later this week, I will make pumpkin pie filling, oatmeal flatbread, a port wine cheese ball, and split the atom with my bare hands. And scrub baseboards!

At this point I think I'm beginning to sound like a Cathy comic strip, so I'll sign off.

Oh, Thanksgiving. The madness you visit upon this household is truly biblical. I still love you, though.

I hostess-ed my first Thanksgiving feast last year. Luckily everyone helped by adding a dish. But I must say it was a generous amount of responsibility! I'm thankful to be heading to my folks' for the feast this year. A little less stress for me!

Cassandra, last year was my first hostessing experience, as well! I'm not sure I could go the potluck route-- it's too much fun to scheme up the menu!

I LOVE the stars! Making pie crust is something I love to do and adding stars would make it as pretty as it is tasty. :)
