Good morning and happy November!
I love all the dress up stories...too bad we do not have the ability to post photos, anymore.
We enjoyed our Halloween, low-sugar, no white flour cookies that DH said more than satisfied his craving for candy. I sent him to work with a couple so he can resist the bowls of leftover candy that make him sick every year. Anyone with a sugar/white flour concern who'd like the recipe, email me at kargiverbdc at gmail...it's definitely a keeper.
No traffic on our road last night, and anyone would have a death wish to trick or treat by here - it's pitch black without one street light, curvy, narrow, and the houses are far apart. Until some of the older kids on the street have kids (5 - 10 years from now) I doubt we'll have trick or treaters.
We're celebrating Thanksgiving at SIL's house. She asked me to bring pecan pie, and I have a special recipe that I LOVE for it so I'm looking forward to that. I'll make DH the cookies I just made so he can have safe treats, and the pie will be "bad." :) We're hosting Christmas.
Prin, I hope your TG will be a JOINT effort...I got anxious to read how many people you're hosting.
The Bourbon brine in this month's Cooking Light is amazing. I did a chicken with it, and it would be superb for a turkey. No worries about the smoke or grill part; I just roasted it in the oven. DH loved the flavor, too. I'd brine a turkey 2 days and a chicken 24 hours next time (not 18 like it called for).
Tomorrow is my day East with a friend I used to work with. She changed jobs and works in Framingham, now, so we have a lot of restaurnts to to choose from...
