Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and here’s hoping you all have much to be thankful for. We certainly do: family, friends, health, our home and garden, books, cats, quilting, being retired, and so much more.

Through the woods and over the bridge to Grandmother’s house they go.

Wednesday evening, our turkey will go into the brining solution to soak for 12 hours, then back into the ‘fridge until late tomorrow (Thursday) morning when it will be stuffed with the aromatics (apples, cinnamon, onions, sage and rosemary which will be discarded when it’s done) and eventually put into the oven.

With it, we’ll have stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry, green beans (steamed, not casserole), and pumpkin pie.

While all that’s going on, there’s NFL football on all day, starting at 9:30 am (!). I’ll watch the Bills game, and some of the others, but also help in the kitchen and get some reading done.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Sounds good (except for the pumpkin, which…yuck). Turkey breast, stuffing, roasted potatoes, corn, cranberry jello mold, and chocolate pudding pie here.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    it’s nearly 3pm here, the Turkey is about to go in the oven. Pumpkin pie is done and cooling, apple and sweet potato casserole is baking, green salad is done, nearly all the parts of the dressing and rice and and mushroom casserole are already cooked, carrots and mash potates will get cooked on the stove when the turkey is nearly done.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Rick. We love pumpkin pie around here. Ham, and conrbread. and my son makes a luscious loaded mashed potato casserole. With tons of leftovers.

    We are thankful that the Cave Fire that was above us was under control (for the most part) before Thanksgiving. The college I work at closed down Tuesday and Wednesday because of the fire, so this has been a strange, long Thanksgiving holiday.
