Furrkids Mom, there are still leafs on the tree across the street, even though the rain is trying very hard to knock them off. You are not the winners of the Last Leaf Falls Contest.
Mom did a good job yesterday. The turkey she served for dinner was the second turkey she had ever cooked in her entire life. She followed this recipe. She put the turkey in a big pan of water and junk on Wednesday morning, and took it out before it went in the hot-as-hell box yesterday.
Mom cooked "the usual suspects," smashed potatoes, squished squash with maple syrup, buttered brussels sprouts, roasted onions swimming in balsamic vinegar; her red pepper soup, some spicy drunken cranberries, a loaf of her awesome bread and devil-stuffed eggs (I personally do not know anything about a devil.) Mim-may made the meat stuffing. Together they made some awesome gravy. It smelled awesome, tasted great, and everybody had a great time. Today Mom is going to follow my example and spend the day napping and relaxing.
