Happy Thanksgiving!

24 Nov

Both The Squire and I have colds, so we stayed put today rather than risk giving it to the kinder. I am just getting over this plague, but The Squire is smack-dab in the middle of it.

I fixed him a stuffed chicken breast, and made a cauliflower-red onion tart for myself. It was absolutely fabulous, but it took the Devil’s own time to make, and dirtied virtually every pot and pan in the kitchen.

Three cheers for whoever invented the dish-washer!

Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

We topped it off with a slice of pumpkin-caramel pie, which had more calories per slice than the average Ethiopian sees in a week – garnished with low fat “whipped cream”.  Well, you need to cut corners someplace.

I even got out the good dishes and the sterling. And I only set off the smoke alarm once!
