late night thanks


    It’s late. Everyone else in the house has gone to bed and I’m waiting for the last pie (of eight) to finish baking so I can sleep as well. Here as Thanksgiving Eve gives way to Turkey Day, I’m in full blown food mode, so this time food is food more than metaphor. Here’s our menu for tomorrow:

    deep fried turkey (hey – I’m in the South now)
    cornbread dressing (my mother’s recipe)
    buttermilk mashed potatoes
    green bean casserole (Ginger’s favorite)
    roasted corn and crushed pineapple risotto
    chipotle sweet potato and pecan gratin
    maple glazed brussels sprouts
    roasted butternut squash with plantains (I’m making this one up — I’ll let you know how it goes)
    refrigerator rolls

    And for dessert:

    amazing pumpkin pie
    sweet potato pie
    apple pie
    pecan pie
    brown sugar buttermilk pie
    blueberry pie

    I’m a thankful boy.
