    Happy Thanksgiving.

    I hope everyone gets to spend time with the people they love and have safe travels.

    Ah, my Thanksgiving is this weekend (my family is BIG on convenience :lol), but I hope all those who are celebrating the holiday today have a wonderful time and get a really sweet tryptophan high out of their carb-overloading :cool

    I had mine yesterday because I had to work today. In fact I just got home from work and stuffed myself with leftovers. The Swede and I invited a friend from Ireland and his Swedish girlfriend, both of whom had never had Thanksgiving dinner before. A friend in the States sent me cans of pumpkin and evaporated milk, so I made a pie which was a huge hit. The Swedes had never had pumpkin pie before and they both thought it was to die for.

    And the turkey...ohhh the turkey was the best I've ever had! It was tender and succulent and absolutely delicious. All Swedish chickens and turkeys are raised with no growth enhancing hormones or chemicals. This means they aren't very big (mine was about 9 lbs) but it makes a huge difference in the flavor.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    When I'm trying to go to sleep, I count my blessings instead of sheep.

    I just heard old Bing sing that on White Christmas a while ago.

    Happy Thanks Giving everybody.

    Wow, Rose. I wish I had come to your house! Of course, we had some good 'fixinz' too, but not as much, since we have a smaller family on my Dad's side, where we have thanksgiving. I love cooking, and all of that sounds like something to be proud of, but I bet you were TIRED! Good job, Rose.

    Rose, that sounds like my people. They come from far and wide to chow at my Mom's. She's a master cook from way back.
    My family is interesting in a loud crazy sort of way. Old hippies and old sailors, musicians, a professor, artists and engineers, successful dropouts and struggling grads, carpenters, a mathmetician...

    and they are all as full of shit as a Thanksgiving turkey!
