Home-smoked bacon! Yum, I would put a bit in the dressing.
Our dinner plan is simple. We ladies want to relax too! My oldest son fries the turkey, my daughter-in-love makes creamy mashed potatoes. I bought Heinz Turkey Gravy. My middle son is bringing buns and pecan pie from a well-known bakery. I put together a veggie & pickle tray and bought a can of both kinds of cranberries, (yes we like the kind with ribs too!). I also baked a homemade pumpkin pie this afternoon, (I prefer to put half again as many spices as the Libby can recipe calls for). The dressing is cooking in the crockpot as I type. It will be done by morning, and then I will put the crockpot on warm until dinner. My youngest son provides the adult beverages. He is a distiller and a bartender.
When I was younger I made everything from scratch, but now it tires me out. I guess it did when I was young too, but I rebounded faster.
