Admit it. Have you been sampling?

One of my friends told me that last year she bought a fully cooked deep fried turkey home the day before Thanksgiving. She turned it upside down so she could eat some of it without it being visible and then served it as a hole turkey the next day. Anyone have similar habits? Not my thing, but I thought it was funny.

I haven't really been sampling but then again, I haven't made the stuffing yet!

I made gingersnap ice cream sandwiches to go with my individual pumpkin custard.

Of course I sampled :o)

I've been sampling all day to make sure everything is seasoned right. So much so that dinner doesn't sound all that appealing! Adellabella, have you been sampling?

Yep! DD2 gave birth to her new baby girl Monday evening, they came home today. I just finished cooking the full dinner to take to her house tomorrow. DH is carving the turkey as I type, and I'm about to go sample. We already had a bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy and called it dinner! LOL

Well, I opened the bag of chips to go with the hummus and I've been eating them all afternoon. I'm not cooking so I'm not sampling -- yet.

I baked an apple pie and made my bread stuffing - being a good Mom, I wanted to sample these to make sure no one would get sick - I survived. I will most likely continue to sample these items until bedtime - just to be certain they are still good!!!

I just made the orange cranberry sauce, and it had to be tasted to see if there was enough sugar in it. ;-) Then I added the orange juice and tasted that. Then a dash of cinnamon. Taste. Then the orange pulp and zest. Taste. Then the Madera wine. Taste.

I was surprised that I had any left over for tomorrow. It's so yummy when it's hot.

Hi Adella Bedella,

" ... and served it as a hole turkey the next day ...", huh?

I think that you're right - it did have a "hole" in it!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Yeah I noticed the "hole" after I posted. No edit buttons on here. My proof reading doesn't always work.

Not tonight. DD is cooking, and I am doing dessert. I haven't started yet! Guess I will be starting early and not watching the parade.

I have cooked only the pumpkin bread and the cranberry sauce. Like Ravin, I will be doing all the rest of the cooking tomorrow. My sister will bring the dessert, salad and vegetables, and my new DIL will bring her rolls. I will stuff and roast the turkey and also prepare sweet potatoes and twice baked potatoes, corn pudding, mincemeat peaches, mulled cider and a couple of other things. I will be pooped tomorrow night and ache all over.

I baked pumpkin bread this evening to take to my cousin's tomorrow. I made 3 loaves and have had 2 slices while the bread was still warm.

Sampling?! I bought mixed nuts in the shells last week and had to go back for more today because there weren't many left.
