really, does 2020 have anything to be thankful for? i mean, i guess i’m thankful that the orange psycho wasn’t reelected, but of all the detritus that 202 has thrown at us, and for how awful the OP is, that’s a pretty low bar.
to be fair, i did miss that jane wasn’t joining me for tday. this year was the 10-year anniversary of our super awesome black friday shopping (i got a $500 fridge, we used two expired coupons, and won a scratch-off lottery ticket). and while we did watch die hard at the same time, it just wasn’t the same. sigh. next year.
but, i did make food. in fact, i am still eating food. specifically, pie. my pumpkin pie was ginormous! and there are leftovers galore. i’m gonna have to freeze some turkey.
i always have good intentions with taking pics with my good camera, but it’s sadly just easier in the moment to grab the phone camera. anyway, here are some food pics.
spatchcocked bird! i roasts in about an hour and a half/hour 45. it’s so much quicker. maybe some year i will try putting it on the grill.
then there’s my pumpkin beauty. it’s pretty zingy this year because i made the filling while i was drunko and kept adding stuff. it’s also a little sweeter than i’d prefer, but you know what? pumpkin pies are easy peasy to make (like seriously, the filling is three ingredients and then spices), and i have a metric ton of pumpkin yet, so i may just make another one.
i picked up some dinner rolls from a bakery in st joe (the dinner rolls megan and i had at krewe restaurant – omg they are to die for) and i got some flowers while i was there. you can see my just-in-time-completed puzzle on the table.
not a bad spread. i love squash.
time for die hard! and some stan on the lap! (the halloween cat house has since been retired for the season.)
omg it’s a yeti sighting! nate’s bday is today. he’s 43 yikes.
