It’s Pantry Week on the HGP. I’ve ordered my turkey (from Blue Apron) as instructed and made Cowboy Cookies for the freezer. I’ve got all the children’s presents and will wrap them this week. I’ve invited the young people for Thanksgiving and I’ll get some stamps for a few Christmas cards when I go to the post office tomorrow after my doctor’s appointment.

My pantry will be a big job, I think. It’s gotten out of hand and there’s too much stuff in there. Some ion it probably should be tossed — all the sweets from before my diabetes diagnosis, I guess. All the sugar substitutes, which taste uniformly awful. Baking mixes. The things that don’t fit into my new normal.

Knitting Fleming is the top priority.
