As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!
Bonus points for knowing where that quote comes from.
Thanksgiving was nice. I made my first turkey, and it was BEAUTIFUL, if I do say. I took a picture, but don't have my usb cable here, so it will have to wait. Dinner was just Husband and me....also nice. I had to run into work for a couple of hours, so I did that while the turkey was cooking, then came home and made the sides, and we ate when we were good and ready. So it was nice and no pressure. Only thing that wasn't so great was my stuffing....burned it.
And Paula Deen's Pumpking Gooey Butter cakes? WAAAAYYY better than pumpkin pie.
Today is a nothing day. Seriously. I slept and slept and slept. Husband came home for lunch, and I did manage to make up a casserole for dinner....we'll see how good it is, because I totally made up the recipe.
Question: Where did casseroles get the rep as being "easy"?? You have to dirty at least as many dishes as you do for a "regular" meal. More, since now you've involved a baking dish.
As part of my Nothing Day activities, I have been watching a lot of stuff on TIVO, including Oprah. I decided I don't care what other people say, I don't care that she seems a little full of herself (IMO, she has a right to be, but whatever), Overall, I admire her. She has more money than God and is very generous with it. I think it would be a BLAST to be able to be comfortable enough that you could buy hurricane victims new houses, or give someone a car, or take all your employees and their families to Hawaii. And who cares about her motivation? The bottom line is that she tries to do good. Too bad more people rich and poor, don't have that bottom line.
