I've got to work late tonight. It should be interesting. A chief justice of a foreign court is coming from one of those places that requires us to have heightened security.
Tonights blog-fodder comes from Lee.
My Favorite part the Meal: I think it’s the stuffing: the recipe is from the Black Family Reunion Cookbook. I don’t care what color you are, you need this cookbook. I’ve waxed poetical about the triple corn stuffing before.
Worst part of the meal: Canned cranberry sauce. People! It’s so easy to make from scratch. Make it on Tuesday night and it will gel nicely for Thursday. Good stuff. Do it! Do it, Do it!
Anything new in the meal this year: I don’t know, my cousin hasn’t told us what we’re having. But the first time she cooked Thanksgiving dinner for us she made creamed onions for her husband. His mother’s recipe. Not so much. Oh! I almost forgot, I'm making Alton Brown's sweet potato pie recipe this year.
Dishes that we don't make anymore, but I'll always miss them: Cranberry shrub—cranberry juice with a scoop of lime sherbet floating in it. We started every Thanksgiving with this when I was a kid.
