I can't wait for turkey!!!

Thanksgiving

Saturday I went with my family to see the Plymouth Thanksgiving Parade. In all the years we've lived in Plymouth, none of us have ever gone to the parade. I've only been to see the rock because it's smack in the middle of downtown and you can't miss it. And I've been to the Plantation once on a high school field trip. It's funny how that works. I do love being from Plymouth though, and eventually I imagine I'll end up living there again but for now the commute to Boston is just too far and I like being near the city. Anyway, this is one of the 200 photos I took on Sunday.

Now, first things first, a HUGE THANK YOU to Marlow!!! I received a package full of goodies yesterday and that just really made my day so much better. I got Larabars, Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats, and some GF Pantry Flour. So excited! I have tried Larabars before and had a hard time getting used to them but I tried on yesterday and it was pretty good. My Dad grabbed one of the cashew ones and he loved it. I'm ready to give these another shot.

I opted to skip school and go home and get some groceries instead. I got all of the ingredients for the stuffing I'm going to make tomorrow night. I can't wait to see how it comes out, I'm using Van's waffles as the bread.

Also, Sunday night I used the Pread Crumbs from Shabtai Gourmet (Pread because they're made from potato starch). My roommate was going to shake and bake some chicken and she asked me if I wanted some plain and I decided to make my own shake and bake. It worked out pretty well! I added salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried parsley to the crumbs, rinsed the chicken in water, coated it in the crumb mixture and baked. It wasn't quite as crunchy as regular bread crumbs, and didn't get golden brown but the taste was great, so much better than plain old chicken! And I have lots of crumbs left for other things. I really want to try a baked mac & cheese soon.

Jenny,

Thanks for the tip about using the waffles for your stuffing! I never would have thought of that! You're a genious! I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
