Hey Everyone, I thought i'd just "report" in -

Getting ready for Thanksgiving for ten.  Listening to my enhanced BBM soundtrack (enhanced meaning I added to the official one, with "Melissa," the original version of "King of the Road" (the one in the movie), and my favorite - Desi Arnaz and orchestra singing "Quizas."  Plus a few others: a great brass version of "Battle Hymn of the Republic," etc.

Anywhoo, I'm happy, I'm immersed in BBM, in my own home, in getting ready for my mother in law with Alzheimer's, my sister in law with severe dog allergies, and my nephew with dairy allergies, and the five meat-eaters, and four vegetarians, my 4 1/2 yo who will be both overwhelmed and lavished with love.  It's a sweet life, and if I can keep myself from being a stud duck (aka controlling @sshole), things should be pretty lovely.

I also, for the first time, am using my grandmother's pressed glass for dessert plates and for some of the serving pieces.  I received it two years ago, but it felt too risky with a toddler, so it's been stored away.  It's in the dishwasher now, getting sparkling for later.  ("In the dishwasher, are you nuts, Elle??"  If it can't handle our lifestyle, I'm sorry.)  :)

For anyone who's not feeling like it's a sweet life today - been there, done that.  For quite a few of my previous 47 Thanksgivings, and other holidays.  Love you.

Today's menu:
(SIL stands for sister-in-law is bringing, N stands for niece is bringing)

Turkey (SIL)
Quorn roast
stuffing (SIL)
fingerling potatoes in sage/lemon butter
turkey gravy (from a jar!)
yeast gravy (yum)
whole petite green beans (frozen)
creamed spinach (frozen)
Poppin' Fresh crescent rolls (from a can)
cherry tomatoes still on the vine
olives
pumpkin pie (SIL)
apple pie (N)
cherry pie (N)
vanilla ice cream
vanilla ice cream with chocolate ribbon
raspberry sorbet
grapes
Earl Grey tea
soy nog
sparking cider
orange fizzwa
water
