Talk about any holiday/celebration type events here. Thought it would be useful if it's all in one place.
Well its the day before Thanksgiving here in the US so I did my last minute shopping after work. When I got home I spent a hour peeling and thinly slicing six sweet potatoes and then boiling them about ten minutes so they are soft, but not al dente. Right now they are cooling down, and I will transfer them to a flat cookie sheet, and wrap then up and refrigerate. Tomorrow I will divide them up into two casserole dishes. In one dish I will top the sweet potatoes with real maple syrup. In the other one I will top them with cranberry sauce. I will cook them in the oven for 20 minutes at 250F and they should be good.
Unfortunately the holidays are not what they use to be since I lost my only sibling thirteen years ago, and I lost my dad to cancer three years ago. Even though I'm 33 years old I'm not interested at dating anybody right know even though my mom keeps saying I should join a dating site at least once a month, but I can understand that she just wants to see me have a social life . Tomorrow my Mom and I are going to Thanksgiving mass in the morning, and then we'll visit my aunt and uncle (my uncle is recovering from an operation). Later my mom and I will celebrate our Thanksgiving meal tomorrow night. I will watch the Packers/Bears game tomorrow night, and I hope the Bears will win it.
