Well I made some cramberry sawce.  Didn't have any OJ concentrate, but I did have an orange, so I got ouut my miracle microplane (my favorite gadget!) and scraped off the thinnest outside layer of the peel, and squoze the juice into a measuring cup.  Added enough water to make 1 cup, put in 2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 cup sugar (running short of sucralose), and 2 cups of frozen berries....and cooked it all down.  I have enough to last a few months....  IF I don't get a turkey on sale in the next month or so.

BERRY good!  I love cranberry anything...juice, jam, and I have a recipe for cranberry ice (The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American...I loved Jeff Smith, and still miss him.), if someone will just let me borrow a Donvier....   Perfect for a hot summer day, with chicken!

Local temp was 87 F today; WTF month IS this?

I still want to slap the avocado thieves, but I don't know exactly which house they live in...just know it's up the hill....

My T-day was at my younger daughter's place and she had about 30 people. Lots of good food. My ex is there and also my older daughter. Not seeing the younger daughter in some time, we finally went off in her bedroom to talk and get caught up on things. She tells me she still believes in god, but not the way the churches teach you. I took that opportunity to tell her I no longer believe, period. It's all a myth.

The end result was that I had good food with lots of good people, and also planted a seed for "atheist preaching." Older people tend to cling to god. I haven't got time for such nonsense.

I usually give avocados to friends as holiday gifts, and if we have a large crop my sister sells them at 50 cents apiece.  I'm still angry.

Joan, lovely Thanksgiving! We just had ours.
Just the 2 of us but it was all there, bread rolls, cornbread dressing, green bean casserole, orange and raisin glazed sweet potatoes, cranberry 2ways, and Ning had some turkey.

Plant and garden theft is common. I dont know what to do about it. I wish people were nicer, but they are not.

I guess the avocado thieves were doing their holiday shop lifting early!! As a child, we had a massive pear tree that bore enough fruit to feed a small village. We could never eat or preserve everything that come off that tree. Nevertheless, before people would pick them, they would knock and ask. Hope the bitches choke on the pits!

Sorry about your food thief troubles Felaine.

While Laura vacuumed and dusted, Larry prepared the pies and turkey, I cut up the onions and celery for the dressing. Finger foods for the kiddies rest in the frig. The cranberry sauces marinate.  Rolls and salad come with guests.

Dogs and cats feasted early and run in the forest chasing squirrels and birds. No deer today. The bitterly cold temperature eased up a little with ice melting on the sidewalks and patio.

Steam flows off the roof toward the forest making a kind of misty, moisty morning.

Most holidays have been "just another day" ever since I toured with HOI, because we always did 2 shows on most of them. But this really pissed me off that they actually had a fruit-picker and a couple of big grocery bags.  They weren't just walking by and picked a couple....they planned to load up, and did.  

I hope they make the mistake of thinking they can eat them today.  It takes at least a week for them to soften up so they're edible.

People used to ASK!

This must be ThanksTAKING day! 

Two women were IN OUR PATIO picking OUR avocados!  They even brought a long-handled fruit-picker, and got about 10 or 15 lbs before I saw them, and refused to pay for them.  I told them I was going to call the police, and they took off up the hill....speaking Armenian.

I couldn't grab my cane fast enough to go after them and trip them.

Thieving bitches.

I recall a couple of Thanksgivings while in the Army where I had C-Rations. Not as bad as it sounds, unless you got the one with Lima Beans and Ham. Those things could drive a buzzard off of a road kill.

In 1969, my brother tried to give a can of the stuff to a village kid in Vietnam begging for food. The kid threw it back at him.
