I'm having my family over for Thanksgiving this year so I'm gearing up to do some major cooking and baking in the kitchen. I got my fridge stocked and ready to go. I'm just a little nervous. I've only cooked a turkey once in my life and that was years ago. It was the first time I hosted Thanksgiving. I had everything planned and the food was gonna be awesome. Well, it was almost awesome...I forgot to take the giblets out of the turkey. yeah.

My son had a Thanksgiving celebration at his school yesterday. All the kindergarten students dressed up as Pilgrims and Native Americans and sang all sorts of songs, including "This Land is Your Land." It was absolutely adorable. Immediately after their performance, they feasted on popcorn, baby carrots, apple pie, pumpkin pie and juice.

Okay, I have my moments when I'm really REALLY craving for a chocolate brownie topped with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and I don't want to wait. I don't want to preheat, measure, mix, pour, bake and then cool. It's been a long crazy day, I'm dead tired and all I want is a warm gooey brownie and I want it NOW! Well, thank goodness I have my emergency microwave brownie to the rescue. I even have a premixed bag in my cupboard so all I have to do is add the wet ingredients and zap it in the microwave. Aaaaaaahhhh....CHOCOLATE HEAVEN :-)
