It’s that time of year, my favorite cooking holiday of the year! The planning began about two weeks ago with the start of “the list.” Last week I confirmed recipes and did most of the shopping, then came a few adjustments, and yesterday (hopefully) the last of the shopping.
I’ve been quite inspired this year and a few of the things I get pre-prepared, I’m going to make myself (I’m sure HH is very excited about that!) For rolls, instead of Hawaiian sweet rolls I’m making a revised Popover roll. Instead of Mrs. Smith’s Deep Dish Apple Pie, I’m going to make Julia’s Tarte Tatin, inspired by A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg (more on that in a few days).
How is your planning going? How’s your list coming along? Remember, a check mark to the right indicates the ingredients have been purchased. Check marks on the left happen when the item is prepared and ready to go, finally a strike-through of the item when it is on the table, served and ready to go.
I talked to SS the other day, she wondered if “the list” had begun – I did not disappoint!
