The turkey is relaxing in its briny bath. This will be my third year making the turkey this way – I follow this recipe to the letter and make the gravy too. Our very own Bookish Girl is going to try this recipe – sans the gizzardy bits. Maybe once she gets a few Thanksgivings under her belt, she will try the gizzardy bits. They really do make a fantastic gravy.
Now I will begin to make the dessert. Kathleen thinks I only dress up Costco cheesecakes …… ha! We are actually going to a friend’s house for dessert and I will be bringing this along, otherwise I would offer to save her some leftovers. Oh well …… I shall take a picture or two with which to torment her. she probably doesn’t like cranberries anyway. But I bet she’s a sucker for compote. Check it out – cranberry cheesecake.
D#1 is home safe and sound. And she really didn’t have all that much laundry – one load’s worth. But we’ve already had the hot chocolate. By the way, that machine makes wicked good cocoa. I went through ¾ of a gallon of milk yesterday.
Some was spent making lattes, but it certainly doesn’t bode well.
anyway, it is off to the kitchen for me…… I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
