Spending today working and at some point heading to the grocery store to get things for Thanksgiving. I can't say that this is my favorite holiday, or even one I ever really look forward to. This year it's more of a distraction than anything else. Hours lost when I could be writing! Still, I intend to make the best of it. The current plan is to make:
Festive Sweet Potato Salad from Vegnews
Dreena Burton's savory chickpea tart
and the PPK frangipane tart (but with only berries this time around).
Usually my fiance's family is pretty accommodating and there will be at least a few sides that aren't slathered in butter. It's nice to get to share at least a few dishes. I could definitely do without having to pretend that I have the foggiest idea about how American football works.*
Alright, I suppose I get productive today so I can spend all of tomorrow cooking!
*Note for non US readers. Every year on Thanksgiving there's a be a big American football game on tv that everyone then has to watch if they're not actively cooking or eating at the time. There's even a wikipedia page about it.
