The Long Weekend

The weekend has come and gone. This past weekend we Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving. The weather was beautiful and I was able to get outside and spread my manure and plant my garlic. I also started to gather up some of the garden pots for winter storage (sigh). Despite the poor yield from my garden this summer, after reading Clay and Zach’s post at the Bitten Word about their garden, I feel a bit better. I managed to get at least two dozen tomatoes from my garden, not just two tomatoes like they did. I think the little fence my husband built helped to keep some critters at bay.

I cooked the best turkey ever, which was not my doing so much as a good organic, free-range turkey and Giada’s recipe, which I almost followed exactly (less the butter and gravy). I also made these cookies for my mommy.

We watched a very good movie (twice – happens when you have a 3 year old). If you haven’t seen How to Train Your Dragon, you must. I normally can’t sit and watch a movie when there are so many other things I should be doing, but this movie kept me on the couch. My daughter snuggled up on my lap helped too.

We enjoyed a good wine; Sundance (Merlot). It really was a tribute to the beautiful sunshine we were experiencing. If I had to describe it, I’d say smooth, mellow and wishing we had another bottle.

I am seriously ready to adopt a cat.

My husband has hired a really nice fella to help him with a huge project we have going on in our basement right now. I’d tell you more about it, but it is very stressful and I’m just not ready yet. We are documenting it with a photo library… in time I may be able to share. Anyway, Mark stopped by on Sunday with a wonderful assortment of Polish deli meats (he’s Polish) as a treat for us for Thanksgiving. That, my friends, was a Thanksgiving weekend highlight.

 How was your holiday weekend?
