Today's to-do list: figure out what I'm going to make for my contributions to Thanksgiving dinner. I signed up for a pie so I'd have an excuse to buy this book I've seen all over blogland, Rustic Fruit Desserts by Cory Shreiber and Julie Richardson. I'm deciding between apple blackberry pie, apple cranberry oat crumble, deep-dish winter fruit pie with walnut crumb. Leaning toward the crumble. I'm also doing a vegetable side dish (maybe this), cranberry relish (probably this) and some appetizers which I haven't nailed down yet but there will definitely be something wrapped in bacon. These are all new this year. Still searching for some new classics to update the core Thanksgiving fare we've been eating for, well, as long as I can remember.
Ok, off to make more turkeys. No school all week here. We've been to the library and the art store already today. Hopefully that'll hold us til tomorrow at least.
