TG Recap

Our Thanksgivings tend to be a bit, um, eclectic. Neither of us is a big turkey lover (one meal yes, ten meals no) and I could be fine with a dinner made completely of mashed potatoes. So Tim often uses Thanksgiving as a day to experiment with different cuisines that take a bit longer to make than, say, grilled salmon and a salad.

To add to the fun, one of Tim's birthday present was (as you can see in the picture) one of those fancy schmancy torches that the chefs on "Top Chef" use. It is a bit disconcerting when he points it from one side of the kitchen to the other and I stand far, far away from him. That baby sounds like a jet engine when he turns it on.

So the menu yesterday was skirt steak with a delicious rub, potatoes in mole, fresh corn salsa, and a garlic and lime steamed green bean salad. The torch was used to get the skin off the many peppers in the dishes. Then Tim made chocolate pot de creme brulee and torched the tops of those as well.

We watched the dog show (favorite tradition) and then last night watched Harry Potter 7.2, and you can't get much better than that.

How about you?

OH and I finished a sweater.
OH and I am almost at 10 miles!
