What are you making, or not making, for Thanksgiving?
I thought I was pretty set, but now Deb's taunting me with walnut tartlets. The obvious answer is, no turkey, just desserts.
There is always a point where I feel like we don't have enough of something - sides, appetizers, desserts. That last one is what is keeping me up right now. We are feeding over twenty people on Thursday. Our robot brethren. There is a 24 pound turkey thawing in the fridge. We bought five dozen eggs today. And there is a smaller, 13 pound turkey in a cooler on the back porch - to be brined and smoked. Seven pounds of butter await, along with four bricks of cream cheese. And a Jarvik Artificial Heart.
So, what are you making, for the day itself and the days before and after - last year we made Chili and cornbread for Thanksgiving Eve, but this year I think, and I pray, that we have Chinese. Or garbage. "Your stomach composts!"
Also, this is something I've been sitting on for a bit, but would you be interested in a drawing/giveaway for a 100% Cashmere long-sleeved "T-shirt" sweater and/or suitcase from a pretty decent retailer? I've never done one on my site, and I don't even know if you'd be interested in that sort of thing. You know? So let me know, in the comments, please, and we'll work this out. Free stuff this year is even better than free stuff last year, I think.
