OK before I get to the news I thought I would share another old video. This is another one that I transferred over to Motion Box. You guys don't get to see Phoebe too often, so here she is. This was taken last year.
Now on to the news. I got an email from Mom and she's going to "hopefully" leave Mike's house on Sunday. That should put her here on Tuesday. That's good because our reservations are for Wednesday.
Then she said that she did not have to rush home because Daryl and his family will be going to the lake house for Thanksgiving. So, that means I may have Mom here for Thanksgiving.
Now the problem. I can't cook a full Thanksgiving dinner, not this year. I'm no where near ready and don't have anything. Plus my kitchen is not in shape for a full day or two of cooking.
I have to come up with something, pretty quick, that I can cook for Mom just in case she's here on Thanksgiving. It doesn't need to be fancy and the special things she likes I don't know how to cook. She likes homemade cranberry sauce and she loves creamed onions. I don't like either one of them so I never learned to make them the way she does.
Meat will be on the menu, but that's OK. I'm not going to force Mom to change her holidays. She is Mom and that's all there is to it.
I'll know for sure by the weekend. So, until I know I am not buying any extra groceries. Once I know, for sure, I can go to the store after the defroster board is replaced on Monday. That's not a lot of time.
I was thinking of making the Lemon Chicken recipe I posted over on Kitchen Chatter. It's in the crockpot so that will be easy. Then I could serve a nice rice and a veggie.
Thoughts? Remember it has to be easy, not too expensive and can be made at the last minute.
