This morning when I checked my email there was one from my DIL who suggested that she provide the veggies, stuffing, cookies, fruit and veggies trays, for Thanksgiving, so all I would have to do is the turkey and ham, cran sauce. So I said well yeah! And that it would be easy for me to get fresh veggies and buy a dip for them, so they didn't have to provide that. And I'll buy rolls. My other DIL is bringing dessert, but I'll make a small traditional dessert also. And I already bought whipped cream. Anyway, to not have to think about so much was a great relief. I don't mind doing it, but I get anxious, since I know I am not a good cook. This way I can concentrate on getting the house cleaned and set up for the family. (10 adults, 5 children)
I was out for most of the day, and when I checked my email after I got home, she said how about if she also picks up a cooked ham and turkey, and all we'll need to do is reheat everthing, and I'll provide the fixings for the pineapple dressing, which she'll make here. Things seem so much easier now. It is so thoughtful of her!
