Thanksgiving Plans

Grr.... Thanksgiving took a last minute turn and landed in my lap this year. So I am starting to freak out because I have 2 days to plan dinner for 10...which isn't bad. It could be worse, right? Actually, I love hosting. Only because it keeps me busy. I find that if I am the one doing everything it gives me less time to eat.

I think I am leaning more towards a ham this year... Pineapple Glazed. I am also going to make a bone-in turkey breast in my crock pot. I found a simple recipe here, but I am going to add some more to it.
I need:
1 4lb-ish turkey breast
chicken stock/broth
a rub made out of poultry season, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper
onions, carrots, and celery
2 tablespoons butter

Here is the plan:

place chopped onions, carrots and celery in the bottom of the crock pot. add rubbed turkey breast. add chicken broth...probably about 2 cups. About half way, flip the turkey breast. Once the breast is done. Coat with butter and broil till brown. Crock pot cooking time is around 7-8 hours. I would cook on high for the first few hours and then switch to low for the rest. Strain out veggies and make a gravy with the remaining liquid.

All I have left is to plan out the side dishes....
