Thanksgiving Countdown: 4...

Four more nights (including this one) until Thanksgiving, and I'm psyched. I've always just ordered Thanksgiving dinner before, because I couldn't fit a turkey into my little Barbie oven. This year, though, I've decided to bite the bullet, and make dinner myself with a huge chicken instead of a turkey.

So I've been spending the last few nights trying to come up with a menu me and my Toy Kitchen can handle and finally, I think I've got it.  It'll involve a little advance planning, prepping and cooking (okay, a LOT of advance planning, prepping and cooking), which aren't exactly my strong points,  but Thanksgiving dinner is my Everest and I'm determined to climb it.  Or at least not fall off.

And in the spirit of the holiday, I'll not only post what I made each night, I'll also list at least five things I'm thankful for:

So today, on T minus 4, I finalized my menu and made my shopping list.  And I'm thanking the universe:

1) For a long overdue facial that made me feel all clean, calm and velvety-soft.
2) For a marvelously decadent brunch and sanity check with one of my oldest and dearest friends.
3) Because the verdict is in: I'm sane.
4) Because I managed to walk by  my Kryptonite, sylvanas, without stopping.
5) For sylvanas.

Life is good. What are YOU thankful for?
