i'm so damned cranky...

so, went to cooking class last night.... even though i'm sick... i tried not to breathe on anyone... i think i was unsuccessful. oops.

at any rate, i'm starting to freak out about doing christmas dinner. i want to do it... it's just that i'm a tad apprehensive about the turkey. i've never made a friggin' turkey before. and it's not like i can just practice on one... we'd have turkey leftovers forever, if i did that...

and then on top of that, this morning, i noticed that we got in the mail yesterday an invitation from his cousins. normally his aunt does thanksgiving and christmas, but this year, her daughter is doing thanksgiving and i'm doing christmas...

but she sends out this really cute invite. it's a fucking turkey and it's got little leaf stickers on the envelope and it's all printed out nicely... goddamnit! why???? she's a teacher for first or second grade, so she does this shit all the time... and i know it's going to be set up all pretty like and shit... oh, man.

i'm screwed. we don't even have enough plate settings for all the people that are probably coming over. hell. i was going to use disposable plates... okay, the nice ones, okay? the nice, thick ones. heh. oh, fuck me.

now what am i going to do???? i am not going to purchase another 12 settings... shit. i'm going to have to go and buy one of those damn folding tables as it is... shit.

why's she gotta go and make a pretty invitation, anyway? no one puts out invitations! fuck.

stupid, stupid.... stupid creative cousin with her fancy shmancy invites and nice table settings.

i guess it's going to be a ghetto xmas for us :(

Firstly, don't be intimidated by cute invites. Everyone is NOT Martha Stewart..if so, we'd all be in jail. Secondly, what matters is what happens when people get to your house, do they have a good time? Are they enjoying themselves? That's what counts!

i don't know how to cook turkey either. i won't even attempt it.

why can't you make a practice turkey? find a small bird, and practice cooking, slicing, and dicing it.

Yeah, I'd be scared to make a practice turkey too... but you should... you can give a plate of leftovers to your office... hehe :P

And for your invites, just go to Wal-Mart and find a box of pretty Xmas cards and send them out as invites! :D

Fuck it! Be ghetto. Who cares!

Damn, at my house tamales do not always require a plate, let alone a fancy shmancy plate. :o)

You'll be fine! I'm sure. Myself, I think I'd be more comfortable at a place that had the nice disposable plates instead of somewhere I had to be all proper for a whole night. Shoot, maybe I'm super ghetto! Great! I can be fancy, though!

Roasting a turkey is really pretty easy. Basically you just crank up the oven and stick it in. Stuffing it with good things helps. And basting it keeps it from getting too dry. It takes time to cook but it's not complicated. If it doesn't work out find someone to blame for having stressed you.

You'll do fine! I made my first turkey a couple of years ago and it really isn't so tough! And don't worry about the fancy plates! Get your butt on down to Ikea where you can buy the plain white ones in bulk for totally cheap! And I like Quyen's idea! Or, you can always send e-vites! It is the age of technology after all!
