Thanksgiving Blogging

The wife and I had our very first Thanksgiving alone this year. It was a fantastic time and a scrumptious dinner. The report card:

Baked Brie in Bread: A+. Always amazing.
Spinach mashed potatoes: A. We're still enjoying them.
Home-made rolls: A-. A little heavy, but delicious, especially with strawberry jam.
Stuffing: B. This was my fault--I made it and I messed it up. Parts were too mushy, other parts were too dry.
Pumpkin pie: A+. It was a great capstone to the meal.
Turkey: A. I wanted to give it an A+--my wife says it would have been, if I had carved it better. Live and learn. The basting sauce was excellent. White zinfandel wine with melted butter--we were told to use a T-shirt to keep the turkey moist. It worked extremely well.

All in all, a fantastic time. It's going to be very difficult to return to work.
