Well, the big plan was that my daughter and I were going to make a
really GOOD Thanksgiving dinner. To *&$% with "tradition". We wanted
delicious. I collected many recipes, sorted through them and made a
Alas, my brother decided to take his family to Washington DC over
Thanksgiving. And he didn't let me know until i phoned him to ask if
his family had particular likes or dislikes.
Then my daughter - who I was very excited to get to see, plus she's a
great cook, so cooking with her is FUN! - called to saw that she was
overloaded with grad school work and job foo, so she wouldn't be able
to make it. She'll be coming for a week around Christmas.
So i cancelled - no sense driving down to San Diego for Thanksgiving
with my Mom - since her sense of smell has departed she only tastes
sweet, salty, sour, and bitter - my daughter and i will visit her
And my consort always goes to his mother's in SoCal for Thanksgiving.
So, i'll just sit here alone in the cold and dark. Sniff.
I'm baking a pumpkin-pecan pie and 3 small sweet potatoes in their
skins (so i'll have some for later). I got some beautiful mixed salad
greens (mesclun?) with fresh flowers in it from a local Farmers'
Market. I got some nice green beans and mushrooms for two different
vegetable dishes. And for reasons even i don't understand, i got a
Tofurkey - because Now & Zen Bakery, which made a better version,
appears to be having some serious business trouble. I'm crossing my
fingers that they've improved the quality since i reviewed Tofurkey
for this list 6 years ago.
I'm gonna watch the Macy's Parade on TV bright (or cloudy) and early
in the morning - something i haven't done in decades - while the food
is baking, and i plan to eat my "dinner" around lunch time.
I also finally gave in and bought a DVD player - and after my dinner,
i'm gonna watch a DVD of "Bubba-Hotep".
