Above: Sunday's sunset.
I just dreamed I met someone whose kids were named Absinthe and Persimmon. I think they may also have had tentacles.
This is one of the first "fancy" dinners I ever tried to cook, in 1997 I think. I remember it being wonderful, but I'm trying it again tonight and we'll see what we think. ANSWER: Pleasant enough, but I'll be in no hurry to repeat it.
You may have noticed that every other foodish blog in the InterWebz has done a Thanksgiving recipes post. We did not. Although we did participate in a medium-scale Thanksgiving meal (15 people or so?), I must say that the highlight of it was the absinthe (perhaps the source of the tentacle dreams?). Good carrot cake, too.
