Cushaw pies cooling on the deck.
Quiche is in the oven.
That leaves me with 12 dozen eggs on the counter, and the little beasties are out there sleeping and brewing up more for the next boxes tomorrow! LOL. Country problems, eh?

Will have son make a custard tomorrow. I love to mix it with vanilla icecream.

As for steel cut oatmeal. I make a crockpot full (9=8-12 servings)and then pour it into a large storage container and toss it in the fridge overnight to cook. I slice it (8-12 pieces) and then wrap it and freeze it. Then I can just thaw in the microwave and add whatever. SO 3 minutes to nice, chunky, steel cut oatmeal. Bwahahahahaaaaa

I just finished baking 2 pumpkin pies from a pie pumpkin a friend gave me. Now I'm trying to figure out what to do with the left over pie filling that wouldn't fit into the pie shell and isn't enough to make a 3rd pie from. Also made another loaf of zucchini bread today!
Moved 3 wagon loads of gravel to the driveway. I think I have about 2 tons of gravel left to move still. I definitely will put some outside of the entrance to one of the chicken coops. It gets so muddy and slippery there. @ChocolateMouse I agree with you, just because it is only going to be the 2 of us at home this year, there is no reason why we can't have Thanksgiving fare. I won't be cooking a bird though. We just don't have room for it in the refrigerator.
Tomorrow I will bake the pumpkin seeds and start wrapping Christmas presents! Oh, and make another loaf of zucchini bread. This 1 zucchini is apparently a 3 loaf zucchini! :lau
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I'd just freeze it and use it later in custard cups or in muffin mix.
We don't cook turkey. The smell of it gives me a migraine to end all migraines, always has. I make chauteaubriand or steaks and bearnaise sauce with baked sweet potatoes and green beans. Rolls or buttermilk biscuits if I feel like it. And a scoop of icecream for sweets.
The Cushaw pies are for a neighbor that can't cook and has family coming from out of state.

Down to my last 4 tomatoes. :hmm Many spoiled rather than ripen this year - they got hit with a frost before I picked them. A couple of weeks ago we went to a large vegetable market. They had heirloom tomatoes at $5.99 a pound. At that price I gave away and ate many thousands of $ worth this year. :p

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
