So ... what are you statesiders doing today? I'm on break, having put the two turkeys (heirloom - a something red and a something white; I was told by the grower but forgot -, 7 1/2 and 11 1/2 lb respectively) in the oven and made the squash (a butternut with olive oil and salt and a hybrid between a pumpkin and something even more tasteless, doctored with butter, rum, brown sugar, and maple syrup), stock for gravy, and bread dressing. Other people are contributing mashed potatoes, gluten-free dressing (I shudder), pea salad, greens, and an assortment of pies and cookies. After my nap I'll make the gravy, reheat what has to be reheated, carve the birds, and sit down with fourteen other happy people for the meal of the year. There's a lot to be thankful for.
