Happy Thanksgiving!


It’s 2am and I’ve just finished packing up the brining bag for the turkey, made with pineapple juice this time. Tomorrow, the cooking symphony will go like this (ideally):

  • bake pumpkin pie
  • bake herb cornbread stuffing (I don’t like cooking the stuffing in the bird.)
  • roast turkey
  • cook cranberry sauce
  • cook maple-glazed carrots (maybe…)
  • make appetizer of tuna salad in lettuce cups
  • make gravy

All these for our Thanksgiving Dinner. Yumm.

My cook-in-crime (a.k.a. brother) is unexpectedly indisposed because of an ankle sprain, so the rest of us will do our best to get things in order. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends!

Every year there are new things to be thankful for — small successes, big successes, baby steps, long leaps, changes, fulfilled dreams, etc.  —  but what I’ll always be thankful for are my family and friends, because without them these are all meaningless. Thank you and love you all. xoxo

Happy Thanksgiving!

Now off to bed I go.
