    <p />Memphis,[p]We had a nice spicy bowl of Tom Yum. Last year it was Lasagne and the year before pot roast. Christmas last year was gumbo, great reviews on that one.......may have to repeat for this Christmas.[p]Rick
  • Memphis,
    Well, I was supposed to have Turkey with my Mom in her assisted living place, but with the icey roads and not feeling well I renegged and rebooked for the weekend. That left the cornish hens I was going to make before Vic started his night shift. They had turned (Gag) That left the turkey meatloaf which I had thankfully thrown together to freeze.... And all in all, it was OK, peaceful, even.

    Memphis,[p]Yep. Garlic shrimp wok-topped on my Egg, baked eggplant with garlic and cheese, garlic pasta with pine nuts, and salad with garlic dressing. [There was a theme here, I guess.][p]But that was Thursday. Today [Saturday] we are off to Grandma's for turkey on HER BGE! [No joke -- Grandma is a brilliant and passionate Egger.]

    <p />Memphis, not this year, but a few years ago, a few of us spent Thanksgiving (wed thru sun) at Cedar Key, Florida. We ate nothing but seafood the whole time. Yes, it was enjoyable ;) The pic was taken on TG morning at 7, temp 35°.
