No, not that kind of K.I.S.S.

When I belonged to (rubber) stamp(ing) club we used that acronym, putting the emphasis on the fact that every card did not have to be elaborate, many times the best ones were clean and simple. 
Keep It Simple Silly!!!
That's my plan for this Thanksgiving - simple! I like to make different things so we have a choice of foods. 
Not this year.....I am making the turkey (it is soaking in brine now), mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn, gravy, dinner rolls, and buying pies and canned cranberries - fini, perfecto, the end!
Less work, less stress for me.
My friend is bringing 2 dishes, she's a life saver. I asked hubby's son and daughter to bring something too!
I use to make a cranberry salad but my friend and I are the only ones who eat it.
Since our basement is messier than usual (due to the refrigerator replacement) I think it's a good time to sort through all the odds and ends that I save and haul some to St Vinnie's.

Remember to KISS! and have a blessed turkey day!

  1. I try and do that, KISS that is. I have never soaked my turkey in brine, but heard it keeps it juicy. Will have to discuss that! KISS for Christmas too, and all will be well!
