Happy Thanksgiving to everyone - the turkey just got popped in the oven after I slathered it in butter & spices, where it'll slowroast for a few hours, the vodka cranberry sauce is cooling and potatoes will be peeled and ready to go in a few - the windows are open, the weather is beautiful and I am enjoying the day ^_^
Happy Thanksgiving! I've got a corn casserole thing in the oven - it is taking a lot longer to cook than the 40 minutes the recipe calls for. I doubled the recipe - does that equate to double the cooking time LOL - a knowledgeable cook I am not. As soon as it looks done, I'll pack it up and head out to my sister's house. I'm lucky to have all of my family in the area - parents, brother, and two sisters within a 20 mile radius. With spouses, nieces/nephews and various in-laws it makes quite a gathering and will be an enjoyable day.
Hope everyone HAD a nice Thanksgiving with all the goodies...
I did a lot of gardening--as my daughter and her DH went to Dad's for the big meal.
I am up and it is the middle of the night. One more hour and i will be at work (@ 5AM)
Wonder if there will be a line outside HD??? And--if there is--who will stand guard
and let the employees in but keep the customers out??? Hmmmm...
Be safe if you are heading out in all this madness...Gita
We had a lovely day, shared with family, 2 of the children and families shared the day with in-laws. I will say dinner for 9 is a little less hectic than 16, but their absence was felt. I'm just thankful all were well and able. Ric
Hope you all had a great day!
Thanks Paul for the thread and lol that cartoon!
We had a great dinner at our house, just 'us' and Marks mom, counting our blessings.
Not too many leftovers but looks like hot turkey sandwiches tonight.
The only "spice" in it is some diced, fresh Ginger and a bit of whole Cloves, which get removed.
Of course--it is piquant due to the cranberries and the whole ground up orange in it.
It also has several apples in it to "gentle it down a bit" from the tartness.
Maybe if you have only eaten the canned stuff--this may taste a bit 'spicy"...But--OH, so good!!!!
After dinner tonight at Cheesecake Factory we stopped in at Lowes(just to check it out). Walked out with an multi-tool oscillating doohickey. Half price. Hey, if it will help Jeff in his woodworking or whatever and save some time I am all over it. Time is money I tell him all the time. Good quality tool.
