Busy, busy day! Some cleaning, but a lot of kitchen work...and need to balance that with meeting the needs of my two little guys. :)
We're hosting Christmas dinner tomorrow - if some of the prep doesn't happen, that's okay, just a matter of more to do tomorrw - but DH will be home then, so he can focus on the kiddos while I cook.
Ideally, I will:
Finish printing out recipes
Boil eggs & make devilled eggs
Mostly make stuffing (cube bread & toast, cook celery/mushroom/etc mixture, par-bake)
Bake pies - pumkin layer, pecan, coconut custard, and maybe apple
Prep brussels sprouts & steam/par-cook
Peel, cube, and oven-roast sweet potatoes
Possibly caramelize onions
Assemble cookie tray
Bake some Chocolate-cherry crescents if I get around to it...
I think that's about it...there's some tidying that should happen, but not that much - I do need to scrub the kitchen floor if I can get to it - but the boys both love swishing with a rag, so they can 'help', and maybe have some water-play too. Bigger boy (almost 3) loves to help cook, so I may get some of this started w/ him while smaller one takes a.m. nap...Right now, I'll finish printing recipe and then off for play-dough and coloring w/ the boys. :)
Wish me luck! :)
