Thanksgiving update

I spent most of today cleaning, then cooking a ton of food.

It turns out that the oven here is hotter or more efficient or something, because my sweet potato pies came out kind of toasted-looking. The pumpkin pecan spice cake ended up a bit toasted, too, but also a bit sqashed.

(Who knew that cakes actually fall? I thought that was just in the movies.)

So anyway, it's nine minutes from T-Day, and I'd like to take this opportunity to mention why I'm thankful. I'm thankful that:

1. None of my guests is actually coming here for the food;
2. We are somewhat lacking in furniture, so people won't have anyplace to sit;
3. We stocked up on liquor, adding to an already impressive supply, so with nothing to sit on, I predict that my guests will get falling-down drunk;

and that means they won't remember that I burned the desserts.

  1. You know, those all sound like pretty good things to me. I'll be right over.

    Happy day!
