Happy (early) Thanksgiving

Filed under: Alameda, Warm Fuzzies — Lauren Do @ 6:07 am

Nothing for the rest of the week but I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving.

Today is a day of prep for me where I spend all day in the kitchen prepping for the big day to make the actual Thanksgiving day look effortless and breezy. So I’ll probably pop Lord of the Rings (extended version) into the TV and chop veggies for stock and make pie — this year it will be pumpkin and pecan — and an apple crisp instead of pie.

For those that were wondering, the spatchcocking method attempt last year turned out wonderfully and was so super fast. Also the oil-less fryer worked awesome as well and both were well received so I’m doing the same again this year.

#1 daughter brought home the requisite Thanksgiving Day craft from school which involved a construction paper turkey with five multi-colored feathers each proudly proclaiming something she is thankful for. Naturally it involved the usual thankful for my family etc. but there was one feather that put a little tear in my eye and made me so please and it read that she was thankful for her happy life.

So here’s hoping that in addition to your families and friends that you are thankful for that you also have a happy life to be thankful for.
