Well, our plans got changed because I have a really nasty cold and
sore throat...and, quite frankly, don't feel like fixing anything!!
So, instead of going to a friend's house for dinner, my wonderful
husband is going to make beef strogonoff for today.  Later, probably
tomorrow, I'll make the buttermilk-cardamom pie (going to try it with
Splenda) and do the turkey from Saveur and the rest of our dinner on
Sunday.  Wish me luck!!
