Thanksgiving Prep

The turkey is thawing. Side dishes have been assigned to family members. Dinner is Friday this year. I have the ingredients for pumpkin pie and stuffing. In the freezer I have shrimp for appetizers. I need to get potatoes, a few wedges of cheese, and crackers. I also need to make...cranberry sauce!

We have always just used the recipe on the package: 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to 1 bag of cranberries. I'm using 4 bags of cranberries so I can put up a few jars and still have enough to serve.

And in between all this cooking, I have to work an overnight shift!

  1. Might I suggest throwing in a little grated orange zest and/or fresh ginger? Just a thought. Happy Thanksgiving!
