Luckily, my family knows me better than that and everyone was already planning to provide! No one knows you better than your family!
I am a nervous wreck. For those of you that know me well, I do not cook. The times I try, it usually turns out yuck! It is ironic because my mother is a wonderful cook and can cook just about anything, and it is so darn good! There are a few things I do well..... I can make a bowl of instant oatmeal to just the right consistency, just ask my kids. I also make a to die for grilled cheese..... again, just ask my kiddos.
BUT take today for example, I put a roast in the crock pot. I added all the yummy extras such as carrots, onions, and potatoes. I turned it to high and walked away feeling oh so proud. Well Justin and I went out to finish our Christmas shopping and then had a nice dinner. Over dinner Justin says...... oh no, did you leave the crock pot on? The look on my face told him what he already knew.
Thank goodness Opi came to the rescue and ran to our house and turned it off. Hopefully Christmas dinner will go much smoother. I keep picturing the turkey from the movie Christmas Vacation (my all time favorite Christmas movie, by the way). I have provided the clip below, just for your entertainment. Enjoy!
Well..... wish me luck!
