Thanksgiving day.

The menu went:

Beef and bacon pate topped with blueberry jelly on baguette rounds
Cranberry salsa on cream cheese with crackers
An artichoke spinach dip with gluten-free crackers (brought by guests)

Roasted turkey (Trader Joe’s, pre-brined, never frozen)
Mashed potatoes (made with cream cheese, half & half and butter)
Sweet potato rounds topped with goat cheese, pecan, cranberry salad
Roasted sweet potatoes and apples
Classic cranberry sauce with oranges and pecans
Dressing, either plain or with mushrooms, sausage and wild rice (brought by guests)

Pumpkin pie
Bread pudding

Words? What are those again? I didn’t write any today, nor am I going to. NaNoWriMo is a fail for me — I’m also not going to try to write 20K words in the next three days, because I’m going to be busy going to the movies with R and maybe driving him back to college, and maybe recovering from three days of eating all the wrong foods.

But right now I’m going to pour myself another glass of wine and either watch television for an hour or maybe take a hot bath. Ah, the delights of not caring about NaNoWriMo. 🙂

I hope that your Thanksgivings were wonderful!
