Thanksgiving 2014

- Convection roasting produces a beautifully browned turkey.

- Costco's Bistro 28 Organic Cranberry Sauce is very tasty. Ingredients: Organic cranberries, organic sugar, and water.

- Al Roker's mom's Sweet Potato dish is yummy.

- Turkey sandwiches the day after are always better with a side of mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce.

- "Little Thanksgiving" on Saturday night, when the majority of leftover Thanksgiving dinner was eaten up, is in some ways even better than Turkey Day.

- Stirring a Lindor orange dark chocolate truffle into your hot cocoa makes it a hot cocoa to die for. Adding a shot of Cointreau doesn't hurt either.

- Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without family and friends.

(Edited at 1:50 PM to add hot cocoa note.)

Well, it had to be Thanksgiving anyway as we were in Arizona and the kids together up at Klamath Lake in Oregon. We did the traditional dinner but without all the sides. The leftovers were great. I am not really a huge fan of turkey but love dressing :)

I will admit that I think the whole point of cooking a turkey is so you can stuff it with dressing. ;)

You've given me a wonderful idea for all those nasty chocolates that are not worth eating as 'chocolates', thanks!

Haven't visited for a while - all sorts of problems here - but hope the snow has now disappeared.

Loving your sewing and your new sewing set-up! you're hooked, aren't you? :)

Thanks for dropping by, BW. Snow is all gone and temps had been in the upper 60s but now down to seasonal temperatures in the 20s to 40s. No snow though. And yes, I am hooked on sewing. I love taking a piece of fabric and turning it into something else. It is very satisfying.

Sorry to read you are having problems and I hope they have lessened by now and things are going better.
