With all the hubbub over our surprise visitor I forgot to mention how Thanksgiving dinner went, which was surprising well. The highlights were the turkey and dessert.
It was my first time cooking a turkey and I used this popular Alton Brown recipe which I hereafter pledge my allegiance to. It turned out fantastic--moist and flavorable.
And I made N's much-wished-for berry pie, complete with star-shaped vents courtesy of a little cutter that came with a Play-doh set E received for his birthday (Thanks, Gwyn!).
It was very sweet and fun to sit down with N and E and eat our own little Thanksgiving meal.
