Order of Battle

This morning I had the turkey on the smoker by 6:00am after a night of brining. I’ll pull it off again between 5:00 and 6:00pm. That should be enough time.

I’ve finished making my pie crust and my cranberry sauce. My wife is preparing her famous pumpkin chiffon pie filling. The only really time-consuming chore I have left is making my dinner rolls and I plan to start those after lunch.

I’ll try to get another post (and a picture!) out before Thanksgiving dinner but just in case I don’t get to it later I want to wish all of you and yours a happy, restful Thanksgiving.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too and the rest of the regulars!

    Our Thanksgiving is pretty low-key this year – just us, no other family, so I’m just cooking a turkey breast and a couple of sides. My wife made blueberry pie for dessert. It’s not cooking for a group for a change.

    It’s *nice* not cooking…. Only on my 2nd glass of wine.

    Happy Thanksgiving! Didn’t make the pumpkin chiffon pie this year because I was working on my chocolate pie. Everyone liked it, but I missed the pumpkin. Doesn’t seem right w/o it.
