    What is that?!?! Looks deLICIOUS!!!
    I started my 14 lb turkey at 6 this morning. DD's will help with dinner. We are keeping it simple. I make a LOT of turkey dinners so it is almost "do it in my sleep now." Btw, it is always a good idea to grow common sage. I planted mine in 2001 and it just keeps growing and giving back. Just have to snap off a sprig to season any fowl. An onion in the cavity to hold the sage in place and pepper on top, placing the bird upside down, and you take it out 5-7 hours later. I will try to take off the lid and brown it this year, just for fun.
    My Vet made my butter cookies for my birthday. She had to give Eva a rabies shot. DH discovered them and I had to take this picture before he ate them all!! :th

    Fun reading thread!

    I made my Half Moon Bay pumpkin bread with a kabocha squash. Enough for 6 loaves but I made 3.

    DW made apple pie with Mom's recipe and her own little twist, using some tapioca. Mom may have done that too but I remember it with flour. DW complained that the apple slices didn't completely finish cooking! What's to complain about? Five minutes in the microwave, Hot Apple Pie!!

    DD went for a breakfast orientation and I think Dad especially liked that ...

    :) Steve

    I stab my apple pie with a steak knife to be sure the apples are cooked through.
