I cooked Lacinato Kale from the greenhouse tonight. We all like it because it has a lot of flavor and is not overpowering. I tried to get a photo to you and this is the only way I could find to accomplish that task. I hope it works.

With you there, Randy. Mince pie is waaaaaaay too sweet for me.

I hate raisins too.

Comment by Randall Smith on Monday

Oh yuck--mince pie! I always hated it. Both grandmothers would bake one.
As a coincidence, yesterday for the first time ever, I had some raisins and dried cranberries as a snack. Just a hint of sweetness. Pretty good.

I've decided not to have fowl of any kind for Thanksgiving. Instead, I'm having a freezer ham. Not traditional, but with sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, etc., it'll be marvelous, simply marvelous!

I just vaugly remember mince pie.  I think I liked it.

I'm doing nothing special for Thanksgiving day.  I'm going shopping before then and will probably get another pumpkin pie and some more of what I'm eating right now: pumpkin pie ice cream.  Yum!

Randy, for me the Thanksgiving dinner is about the fixin's - punkin pie, yeast rolls, dressing, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole.  I need to do some grocery shopping Monday morning.

This talk about raisins reminds me about mince pie.  I wonder if I can find the recipe.  Black and golden raisins, orange, including spices, and I forget what else.  It was a recipe in Vegetarian Times in the 70s or 80s.  Love that pie, if I havent lost the recipe!

Other than raisin cookies, I'm not a fan of any dried fruit.  I'll eat a dried bannana chip once in a while, but only once in a while.

Talk of raisins reminds me of a scene in the 1993 movie "Benny & June". Sam is played by Johnny Depp.

Sam: You don't like raisins? 

Joon: Not really. 

Sam: Why? 

Joon: They used to be fat and juicy and now they're twisted. They had their lives stolen. Well, they taste sweet, but really they're just humiliated grapes. I can't say I am a big supporter of the raisin council.

Carl, I didn't like raisins by themselves, even when I was young, but Mom made fat cookies that had a raisin puree in the center.  Don't know what else she added, but I loved those.  It's been many years since I've had chocolate covered raisins, but I think I like them also.

Hmmm. Perhaps buying/cooking a Cornish game hen isn't such a good idea after all! Since I can't find one, I reckon it doesn't matter. I'm sure a small fryer will do just as well. I'm eating alone.

I will prepare all the standard Thanksgiving foods--need I list them? Looking forward to it!

Oh, other question.  I planted my trees.  They were from mail order nurseries.  Another quirk, they are much more difficult to transplant than most fruit trees, so they are shipped much smaller to start out.  Mine range from 2 feet to 8 feet tall now.  I would love it if there was even just one pawpaw next year.

What's planned for Thanksgiving dinner?
