I’m starting my Thanksgiving cooking today. My daughter and I are making pies this afternoon, I’m whipping up some cranberry sauce and the turkey is going into the brine. If you haven’t brined a turkey yet, try it. I use this recipe. The hardest part is finding a container big enough, but it’s totally worth it. Best. Gravy. Ever.
The rest of the cooking, and the eating, will happen tomorrow. I’m campaigning for a showing of “Elf” afterward, but my kids keep saying Thanksgiving day is too early for a Christmas movie. Don’t tell them I’ve been listening to Christmas music in my car all week.
After that comes Black Friday. And Small Business Saturday. And Cyber Monday. What, someone couldn’t come up with a shopping excuse for Sunday? I might do some shopping over the weekend - from the safety of my office, of course. I thought if I was going to shop other retailers’ sales, it was only fair to have one of my own, so here’s what’s going on in my Etsy shop:
Starting at 12 a.m. Friday morning, everything in my CraftyStaci Etsy shop will be marked down 10%, and will remain so until 12 a.m. Tuesday morning. No coupon codes needed. Because my blog readers hold a special place in my heart, you get an extra discount! Use the code BBSC11, which will take an additional 5% off your purchase.
Have a fantastic Thanksgiving, and if you’re one of those early shoppers, stay caffeinated and safe!
