My first adventure in real Thanksgiving cooking today. With help of a good friend, I made some amazing turkey breasts. I also cooked sweet potatoes, complete with marshmallows browned on top. And there were garlic mashed potatoes as well. We had dinner with Mike and his family, who made all manner of vegetarian dishes, from chop salad to potato latkes and a meatless meatloaf. There was also pumpkin pie and rice crispy treats for dessert, complete with ice cream and whipped cream.

Had a great party last weekend with friends, but it unfortunately passed the flu around to a good handful of the attendees. I was down for the count the first half of this week. Recovering, fortunately, in time to have dinner today. Several are still down and ill.

The next two days are going to be crazy at work, but as I had the last two days off due to illness, I could do with some crazy. But really folks, let’s not stampede anybody this year, eh? (Not at my job, we don’t do doorbusters much, but in general.) Nothing is more important than the health and safety of your fellow shoppers. Be nice to your cashiers, we’re doing our best, and please, don’t tell us you could get it cheaper online. We are consumers, too.
