I don't know about you, but when I think about Thanksgiving in addition to being thankful, I think about the prep work I have to do, planning the Thanksgiving Menu, grocery shopping, etc.
This year I'm trying to get all of my groceries for Thanksgiving this week since the pandemic began food has been out of stock at most of the local stores. Some weeks are better than others. I've gone to at least 3 different grocery stores to get the things I needed.
I'm noticing that people are starting to panic buy toilet paper again. I don't think they're limiting items in my area, but I did pick up 2 packs of toilet paper that were on sale and a pack of paper towels.
I plan on making the apple filling for the apple pie this week and freezing the pie until next week. I think this is the first time I've made an apple pie for Thanksgiving.
We usually have a small Thanksgiving dinner or we give out plates to friends, but this year since Covid is still on the rise, It will probably just be a quiet Thanksgiving consisting of my mom and I. If you're gathering with family and friends this holiday season, please be safe.
For the first time, I put the Christmas Tree up before Thanksgiving. I started decorating sometime last week. I'll have a post about the Christmas decor soon!
