Day 1 of the Cooking Marathon

Why, oh why, do we beat ourselves up cooking up a storm for a feast that lasts all of 20 minutes in our house?

Because, it's Tradition!

Today I did the grocery shopping, baked a sugar pumpkin, sweet potatoes, a loaf of peasant bread and will brine the turkey.  For dinner tonight we are having hot dogs.  I won't be doing any extra cooking if I don't have to.
