    We started a tradition years ago, after the children flew the coop, and only entertain/visit family and friends on non-holidays. Why add to the stress of travel jams, high peak airline fares and WEATHER concerns?

    Apologies in advance to TCH Admins for being here way too much this weekend. 😉

    Love you all (you too, RD and NYS)

    Prime rib, loaded potatoes, roasted beet salad, soft dinner rolls, an Australian wine, and sour cherry tart. A big bone for Ellie. The kids are with their in-laws so we’re gloriously turkey-free!

  5. ROFL at the young woman cooking the turkey direct from freezer to oven. And the giblets would come out when?
    And screw that cooking turkey to 180 degrees bullshit. 165 kills salmonella and e-coli and most other nasty things.

    The turkey is thawing. Texas pound cake is cooking. Prep for Gullah dressing this afternoon, refrigerator yeast rolls in frig for slow rise, bake sweet potatoes this afternoon for casserole in the morning, then hamburgers grilled for nine people this evening. Then I really go to work cooking in the morning. And I went for a two mile walk this morning to get away from everyone for a little bit. I want a nap.

    We abolished traditional Thanksgiving last year and are staying with that this year (& hopefully always). My husband is a nurse, so he’s nearly always working anyway. I am making a pot roast, however, because it’s easy and delicious, and hubby’s favorite.

    This year I am thankful that my mother-in-law is no longer in my life. She was a royal bitch and ruined everything she could. Now she gets to pay with no son on holidays. He’s going to see her over the weekend, though (we’re not entirely heartless). I’m not. The next time I see her a casket will be involved.

    Will probably be cooking tomorrow so I want to say this today:
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I am truly grateful to have you crazy peeps to hang around with!

    Nothing. We had planned to do Thanksgiving even though it’s not a holiday here, but DH ended up having to work in Paris all week and he’s not back until tomorrow. My MIL, in a rare bout of sensitivity, seems to have noticed that I am homesick (because Thanksgiving is my favorite favorite holiday), so she is getting a millefeuille to celebrate the day. (A millefeuille is a fairly extravagant pastry with a zillion layers of pastry dough interspersed with pastry cream and covered in chantilly. It’s not my favorite–that honor goes to the religieuse–but the kids LOVE it.) I also noticed a whole chicken getting ready to go into the oven. Neither turkey nor pumpkin are really a “thing” here.

    So all in all, it kind of sucks. Also we still don’t know for sure what is going on with the job for DH. The pay apparently has been settled (more than we had hoped for!) but it’s unclear whether he will get full-time hours or not, so he doesn’t have an employment contract in hand yet. But I am still very thankful.

    Love that Nadia G but her new season does not seem to have the same punch and she has put on a few extra pounds..
