I had 6 dozen dinner rolls to make & they look nasty. The oven is not heating evenly of something. If I wasn't turning the pans like every few minutes one whole side would be blonde color & the other brown. Plus I was fighting my rolls collapsing ( this is a recipe that I could make in my sleep) used to supply a few restaurants in the area when I had my bakery. Tried to make a apple crisp tonight. Recipe calls for a 350* degree oven for 45 minutes. At 35 minutes you couldn't even smell the apples cooking. Increased temp & cooked for an addition 40 mins. Then had to use broiler to try to crisp up the crisp part. It probably will taste like he//, but at this point I don't farking care. I am so over this farking holiday. Every year it makes me a wreck. I can't wait until I can finally have a Thanksgiving dinner in my own home. Current count for Hubby's side Thanksgiving dinner is 70. I just want to hide in a closet, but there isn't even room to do that. Sorry about the rant, I try not to complain about this holiday, but it stresses me up so much every year. Red I have noticed you haven't been on much in the past 2 days, but neither have I. Can't wait to get thru the next 3 days.
I'm so sorry! i truly know how you feel! For 15 years, we went to DH's family for Thanksgiving. Wonderful people, but trying to cook my stuff then drag it 2 hours away, they eat at noon. Never tasted like the dinner I grew up with. We ate at 4. It's DINNER not lunch! Stopped going. I have it in my home, cook what I love or don't participate.Why can't you cook at your home?
