<rolls eyes>

Just meandered down the communal kitchen where I snagged a zweigles hot dog, nibbled as is, found my last beer and scuffed back upstairs to ye old room.

BUT, since this house here doesn't get moving to late, and I mean late - by the time I get home tomorrow afternoon ---- the turkey will not be in the oven yet. hehe SO, dinner number two at ... oh.... 11 pm or so

Talk about stretching the day out ...

got up early and brewed a batch of holiday beer, should be ready by Christmas.

had fried turkey with the folks. usual sides: 3 kinds of cranberry sauce (yech), gravy, turnips (yech), mushroom and chicken risotto, green beans...

dessert was homemade pumpkin pie, homemade apple/cranberry pie, and plum pudding with homemade hard sauce.

emptied two kegs of homebrew, too.

so now i'm stuck drinking grappa.

There is turkey, stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, some sort of sweet potato dish, some sort of cranberry dish, blue corbread, a pumpkin sweetbread, lots of olives, and plenty of beer of various sorts.

There are also 2 Chow-mix fuzzy dogs to take care of any spillage and a cat to continuously shoo off the dining table.

The prime rib is resting and the H is making au jus. The sweet tators are mashed (with lime and cilantro) and the asparagus is ready to steam. One bottle of champagne is down as is most of a french pinot. Ready for a california Cabernet....

Nice. I just placed a yeast starter on my stirplate for tomorrow's brew session. Making a cream stout that should be really nice by Christmas.

Dinner was our usual Thanksgiving fare. Cornish game hens, parsnip mashed potatoes, green bean almondine, and rolls.

We had a very traditional meal, which we drove over 570 miles to partake of. First time in quite a number of years that I didn't cook on Thanksgiving.

We had a traditional dinner. It was nice to have my son, 2 daughters & their 2 BF's over for dinner. My wife was sick (nausea), so spent dinner in bed. I think she's better today.

The best part of the evening/night was watching "The Incredibles" with the kids. Oh yeah and the spice cake one of my daughters baked.
