I know we're all busy today! I like to be prepared for a holiday and prep as much as I can in advance. My contribution to the Thanksgiving table is a ham, stuffed mushrooms, and an apple pie. So my prep includes Shopping (done) Cleaning (not done!) Clearing out the fridge (done) Washing all the necessary serving dishes.(done) Picking out my outfit /img/vbsmilies/smilies/tongue.gif I'm going to make the pie dough today and chill it overnight. Tomorrow I will make the filling and bake. For the mushrooms I'm going to cook off the sausage and assemble the filling minus the breadcrumbs. Tomorrow first thing in goes the ham. It's big and we like to have some for breakfast. Then the pies get baked and then mushrooms go in. Question - should I prep the mushrooms today? I wash mushrooms and I do like to prep them a couple of hours ahead so that they dry but will doing it overnight cause them to darken?
