Happy day after Thanksgiving!

I have a small kitchen and very few pots and pans, so I had to cook everything in shifts, but that was fine because I didn’t have a set time that everything had to be finished by, as long as there was plenty of nice food to heat up for the next few meals. I started the turkey at about 9am, and while it roasted I made the cranberry sauce and prepared two apple pies and two pans of stuffing. When the turkey was done, I popped the pies and stuffing into the oven and set a timer so I remembered to take the stuffing out after half an hour. While all that baked, I fixed the green beans and pearl onions (I’d peeled the onions yesterday), and then I made the mashed potatoes and gravy, and by then Dan was up and we had a nice Thanksgiving feast together. Everything turned out great! Oddly, the pies turned out runny, which is strange because I made them the same way I always do, but they taste wonderful!

Dan and I had a second dinner later, and then Henry had a plate when he got home, and now we’ll have more for lunch today! I made another batch of cranberry sauce this morning ’cause you can just never have too much fresh cranberry sauce.

    I’m currently listening to your audio recording of The Secret Garden and after about the 10th chapter I decided I should check out your web site. You have a wonderful voice and I’m glad you have decided to contribute to LibriVox. I’m a new LibriVox fan and I have added a link to that site on my own web site, which is located at As a book lover you might like our discussion forums. We’re reading and discussing The Secret Garden over the next several months. And you have quite a nice site here. The Thanksgiving meal sounded lovely. :-)
