While we were making the banana bread and pumpkin bread, my dad and grandma were preparing the turkey. They had to clean it, stuff it with fruits and vegetables, season it, and put it in the oven to bake for 5 hours.

After baking, we had to put all the ingredients in the right place, wash the dishes and clean the table. Then we are ready to make stuffing. We had four cutting boards. Michael and I cut celery, Sarah cut carrots, and Miriam cut onions. The onions made Miriam and Sarah cry because Sarah was sitting right next to her. Then Miriam sauteed all the vegetables, and we combined it with the stuffing crumbs and chicken broth. It all went in the oven to bake.

Finally, It was time for cranberry sauce. To make cranberry sauce, we used one bag of cranberries, one cup of orange juice, and one cup of sugar. It all cooked in a pot until the cranberries popped and thickened into a sauce. It tasted a little sour and sweet at the same time.

Now we have to wait for dinner, and our whole family is coming over. We are going to have aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents all come over to celebrate Thanksgiving.
What did you do to prepare for Thanksgiving? How are you going to celebrate?
