I decided to do a quick run through of my thanksgiving meal today. Since this is my first time making it I didn’t want any surprises. I cooked 2 Cornish hen in my slow cooker, some white rice with corn, broccoli, cream of chicken soup and cream of mushroom soup in the rice cooker, candied yams, mixed greens, stuffing and gravy, and Mac and cheese.
I am proud to say that everything turned out great!! The only thing that I will tweak is that I didn’t anticipate how quickly the sides would be done compared to the rice and Cornish hen. The Cornish hen takes 6 hours so I started that process way ahead of time. I didn’t realize that the rice would take as long as it did t it didn’t take any longer than normal I guess. More like I didn’t anticipate the sides being so easy to make and finish so quickly. So on thanksgiving the only change is that I will cook the sides once the rice and meat are completely done.
I’m so proud of myself. I cooked an entire meal by myself. I feel like such an adult.
