We had the great fortune to find a 9 lb bird at Superstore. Anything bigger probably wouldn't have fit in the sink or the fridge! G soaked it in a delicious brine and then cooked it for a mere two hours (small birds are quick) along with potatoes and mixed veggies. The turkey was SO JUICY that it was dripping all over the cutting board, over the cupboard and onto the floor.
My duties for the day were to make dessert. I didn't want to make whole pumpkin pies as those are hard to split up evenly (and I love sharing) so instead I bought some tart shells and made mini-pies!
|Add fresh whipped cream and a sprinkling of pumpkin spice!|
And even though it was just the two of us, I did get a little dressed up. I attempted a french twist but since my hair is too short it didn't really work. Instead I improvised, stuck a bunch of bobby pins in my hair along with two orange flowers and a dry pin curl at the front. Ta-da!
I'm also coming along rather well with my knitting. I started over since my last post because I added stitches (I have no idea how) and went from 30 to 61. I unraveled the whole thing and started again by myself, which I'm pretty proud of. I've been at a steady 28 stitches until this morning when a 29th cropped up in there somehow, so now I've got to fix it.
