T-day minus 19 hours

It's that nice break I get when the broth for the stuffing has to reduce by 50%, and God, I am ready to sit down. I've done lots and lots of chopping and I discovered that just the smell of fresh thyme and onions (and bacon) made it smell just like Thanksgiving, even though I hadn't cooked a thing yet. Mmmm, yummy. The three squashes are cooked and I've got the cranberry chutney coming to a boil on the stove now. shadowdaddy is being his incredibly supportive spouse and is currently vacuuming - and he actually prepped the sweet potatoes tonight like I suggested so that they'll be all ready to cook with no work at all tomorrow.

I think I'm giving up on making the second stuffing (the vegetarian one that goes in the squash) for tonight; I'm just kind of pooped out. I've got to say though that ookla and fruity_goodness are saving my bacon because they came by tonight with an air filter (for a guest with cat allergies) AND they took my dog for a walk AND they're coming back tomorrow at three to do it AGAIN. Man, I've got some damn fine folks as dinner guests. I feel lucky.
