The Main Event

Filed under: — stan @ 7:21 pm

So today was the big Thanksgiving feast. This morning, I started out by baking the olive bread that I made last night. Then it was time to put the turkey in the oven to cook while I made potatoes and rapini. But there was a bit of a crisis when we discovered that the cooking bags had been misfiled, and the bag we had wasn’t ‘Turkey Size’. So I got on my bike and rode up to the grocery store. And they were out of the big cooking bags. But I found some in a carton on the top of the shelf, so the crisis was averted. By 1:00 everything was ready. We snacked a bit on the olive bread before the main meal. Then we all stuffed ourselves. The potatoes au gratin were a big hit.

After dinner, I pulled out the chocolate cake I made yesterday. Who needs pumpkin pie when there’s chocolate cake with mousse frosting?

    After that bike ride, you deserve to eat the entire thing yourself! Is there anything that you don’t do?

    Well, I don’t clean up. That’s been our division of labor for years. I cook and Cathy cleans the kitchen.

    But this time, I really was ‘putting on the dog’ a bit. Making bread by hand is a bit much, but I just felt like doing it. And it was really not as hard as it sounds like it ought to be.
