It's Thanksgiving cooking time


Recommended Posts

My entire day (today) is devoted to cooking and I'm sure a few trips to the grocery store! We are spending Thanksgiving at a cabin (more like a house), up in the Smoky Mountains about 10 miles east of Gatlinburg, TN. So we take a cooked bird a small ham, cornbread dressing (stuffing for you Yankees), vegies and a couple of pies with us.

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. Be safe if you are traveling and if you partake in adult beverages, do not drive.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

My wife doesn't like turkey so every year we have to come up with something else that's appropriately festive. This year she suggested that we celebrate our daughter's first year at the University of Oregon by making duck.

I observed that it's a good thing she didn't go the University of Washington . . .

There is an old addage I live by. If you get too drunk to walk, drive.

Two twelve pound birds stuffed with a chestnut, onion, celery and cranberry stuffing.

Loaves of cranberry bread.

Corn muffins with budder.

Potatoes of various kinds in various ways.

Butternut squash mashed with budder.

Sparagus roasted with garlic and spices.

Cauliflower, steamed, then sauteed with nutmeg, butter and salt and pepper.

Pies of various fruits.

Home made wines both red and white.

Family, love, grandkids, and the gratitude that we have for all that the home inspection profession has given us over the last 26 years.

"Peace be with you and raise your prices."
