If you’re one of those people who waits until the 11th hour to do your holiday gift shopping, then it’s possible you’re one of those people who waits until two days before Thanksgiving to decide what you’re making. And if that‘s the case, then let me recap what I’m going to be eating, and perhaps inspire you along the way.
To start off the eating frenzy:
To accompany your big ‘ol bird:
You’re all waiting for the pie, right? Surely Amy will be making a pie for Thanksgiving. I mean, it’s Thanksgiving. And Amy. And pie.

This is the first year, since 2005, that my family will be together, without anyone having to get on a plane. There is guaranteed to be a lot of hugging, high-fiving, crying, and things like “YAY!” being said. And a lot of yummy noises. A lot.
I cannot wait.
Now, if you’ll excuse me…I’ve got a house to clean. Because even I left that until the last minute.
