I have been cooking

Today my husband and I cooked, because tomorrow is our Thanksgiving. We had a lot to do ahead because monster turkey is going to consume that whole oven. To tell you a lot about my husband, the turkey cooker, he worked out the whole cooking time, with and without stuffing, for comparison on a Excel graph to help with is planning.

I would absolutely never do that, as a graduate of the gestimate school of cuisine. Which is why he is doing the cooking of the bird.

I did however make Gina Neely's pumpkin cheesecake which is perfect, perfect so much better than the one I usually use. All of her recipes just work so well for me.

For a break we went out and saw The Social Network which was really good and a nice quick date, although odd because at the 4:30 we were the only people in the theatre. Strange to sit there just the two of us but kind of fun in away, we could talk all we wanted right through - our own running commentary to each other.

If I get up early enough before the Turkey captures the oven I am considering making cornmeal biscuits. Read this blog entry for the recipe I am thinking about, read it too about what you really, really, really want to do in your life.

Me I really, really, really just want time to myself to sew. That about sums it all up for me,
