Thanksgiving Week is right around the corner! Ashley and Bob are busy planning our family dinner which will be on Tuesday night. Ashley wants to make the following:
Butternut Squash Soup
Sweet Potato Gruyere Turnovers
Cranberry and Almond Pasta Salad
Baked Apples stuffed with honey, almonds and ginger
Butternut Cupcakes with Salted Caramel and Maple Brown Butter Icing
I think she has some of her dad's gourmand in her! I'd like to see a grilled steak in there somewhere!
Thursday we will travel with Bob's mom, Irene, to Macon for a Thanksgiving lunch. The Macon people are German and have similar foods, with a twist. Here they like raisins in their stuffing, and the pie of choice is mincemeat pie. Not my cup of tea but there are plenty of other good things to eat! Ashley and Eric will be spending their Thanksgiving Day with Eric's family. That is the trade off we make.
A wealthy, successful corporate lawyer (Daphne Zuniga, “One Tree Hill”) is living the high life in New York City with little time for anything except her lavish lifestyle until a close encounter with a bizarre mystic (Academy Award® Winner Faye Dunaway, “Network”) drops her into an alternative reality to see what her life might have been like had she made different choices.
When we get home Thursday night, I have taped a Hallmark Thanksgiving show to watch. I am sure Bob will be watching some football games but I am not a fan of pro football. At least, not too much. I do like the Packers and once in a while, I enjoy seeing the Chiefs.
My family wishes your family safe travels and Thanksgiving hugs.
