51Days 315 Thanksgiving Dinner Prep

Wednesday evening was prep work for Thanksgiving dinner the next day. It was a small crowd this year with only a total of 16 family members coming.

My Wednesday evening helper was my grandson Hayden. We had much to do. We started with making some yeast bread sticks and while that was rising, we peeled potatoes.

Peeling potatoes for a dinner with sixteen guests is a big task.

As soon as the bread dough had risen it was ready to be shaped. We chose bread sticks in stead of rolls.

Proud of his work, now ready to be placed on the baking sheets

Ta-Da, ready to put on the baking sheets.

As you can tell by the amount of pots, pans, ingredients, dishwasher being filled, our prep work used the entire kitchen.

To read more of Hayden’s cooking adventure that evening you can see that at Totally Random Shez. The link is on the right hand side bar here.

It was his first attempt at actually doing any cooking. He took to it completely. He thought the math part of baking that is used in measuring and the science process of warmth and moisture and sugar for nourishment would cause the yeast to come back to life and grow and give off gas to make the bread rise.

Cheers to science and math,
