 I am not cooking this year.   I am stil making a turkey dinner this Sunday.   I did buy a frozen turkey this year sense fresh turkeys are so hard to find.  To expense if you can find them.   I buy everything weeks ahead besides the turkey(if fresh) and my oysters.

I have stuffing, gravy, dinner rolls and pie ingredients bought already. I pre-ordered my fresh, organic turkey this year and it won't be here until Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning.  I'll buy my vegetables then as well.

 If I'm cooking this year I'm not worried about it since we have everything that I would make. I never go crazy just what I have and go from there.

I'm not making turkey this year. I haven't quite decided what I will make. I thought of a veggie wellington but the recipes DH found sound really gross.

I'll probably go shopping on Tues. or Wed.

 We are going on Monday so the turkey has time to thaw before Thursday...well, I hope that's enough time.  I don't want to go on Sunday because I'm thinking it will be crowded.  Who knows, it may be crowded everyday next week.
