Happy Thanksgiving and merry upcoming holidays to everyone! After two straight weeks of traveling for work, I rounded out November with a short visit to California where I ate food, complained about the sub-45 degree temps and rain, and played with a cute monster of a beagle. I have a puncture-wound scar to prove the monster-factor of said dog.
Although the weather wasn’t quite “SoCal,” the short break away from work was a welcome one. I made pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin-cheesecake quickbread with the remaining batter. Mom successfully made dulce-de-leche by baking sweetened condensed milk in the oven for about an hour. Who knew. On Thanksgiving day, we sat at the table to a beautiful spread: smoked spatchcock turkey, pan-fried brussel sprouts with bacon bits, homemade cranberry sauce, and the aforementioned dessert. D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S.
How was your Thanksgiving holiday?
Looking to spruce up your wall decor before your guests arrive for your holiday shindigs? How about some photo prints by yours truly? There’s a small selection available on my site, and even more here. Your support is much appreciated.
Get excited. I’ll be creating my second annual “Best of” lists. I made a serious attempt to create a year-end list last year when I had a lot going on but also having expanded my literary and cinema appreciation. I had a lot of fun with those lists, and it seems a few people enjoyed reading them, too, so look out! A list for 2019 will grace your inbox at some point in the near future.
‘Til next time.
