Looking ahead to next week
I'm taking next week off to do something I haven't done in forever: Have a week off at home. There are chores to be done, and my daughter and I have a movie list a yard long; but I'll still have time to blog with the help of some virtual friends.
I'm going to try to make vegetarian meals while she's here next week, and I'm already fighting the urge to wake up one morning early and start making stuffing for a nonexistent turkey. ...
In fact, I may have to cave and get one even though only two of us would eat it, because I already miss how the whole house smells when a turkey is roasting.
The photo shows the Thanksgiving feast shuttle astronauts ate in space displayed Thursday, Nov. 20, 2008 at Johnson Space Center in Houston. Clockwise from upper left: green beans and mushrooms, candied yams, cranapple dessert, cornbread stuffing and smoked turkey.
Just looking at it makes me feel better about not cooking this year.
