Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you all so much for you kind words on my article blurb!  It was fun.  I actually liked that much better than the Shape Magazine article.

Anyhoo, we had some nice snow last night….not….

Heavy, heavy wet stuff, too.  At least the roads weren’t bad, but it kept us from Bagel Wednesday for breakfast at any rate.  So, I had some ricotta puffs.

Had the first meeting with my learner today.  John and I actually both went.  We are going to tag team with this learner a bit because he needs both math and literacy work.  I can do both, but it would be easier for me to not do both.  This will likely be a looooong partnership.

That meant we were out at lunchtime, so we stopped in to North Country Cafe and I had my missing bagel!   :mrgreen:

Egg bagel sammie for lunch.

It was a late lunch, so I didn’t miss latte time too much.  Espresso machine is on the way, but it won’t be here until next week.  Eeek!  😯

It’s busy time now.  Finishing up work for the week, plus getting our items ready for the Thanksgiving feast.

I shall file dinner under the category of  “What was I thinking?”

Turkey burger.  Why eat a turkey burger the day before Thanksgiving?  I really don’t know.

I am going to share with you the recipe for the best cranberry sauce ever!  Also known as Lori’s Cranberry Sauce.  It is so, so easy.  This is one of the things we are bringing to dinner tomorrow.

In a medium sauce pan, add 1 bag of cranberries.  Add 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of orange juice,  1/2 cup of water, 1 cinnamon stick and half of a vanilla bean.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes until all the berries pop.  Mash with a potato masher to break up the berries some more.  Cool completely, then remove cinnamon stick and vanilla bean.


I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving full of sharing, eating, family, fun and a little exercise in there!


Enjoy all you eat, but don’t eat so much you are stuffed.  Get out and walk and then catch some football!

I will see you all on the flip side of Thanksgiving with a meal recap!  Enjoy Black Friday and do the Shop Local!

    Happy thanksgiving Lori! My bff made cranberry sauce similar to yours, no vanilla either which I think would greatly add to the flavor.

    I know it gets so old for you, but this picture looks like a Norman Rockwell painting to me. I showed it to hubs this morning and he said, “when can we go meet her?” I hope that happens someday as your area is on our travel bucket list and I know with the music connection we’d find plenty of common ground with you and John! Happy Thanksgiving!
