Seasonal flowers at Dean & Deluca in Georgetown last week
We're in the home stretch (for many things, really, including our half marathon a week from Sunday, but right now I'm talking about Thanksgiving).
Bought all the groceries except for the bread that will be elevated to stuffing. Made the cranberry sauce on Sunday. (Note: It smells very boozy when warm, but has just a hint of alcohol flavor once cooled. Certainly not kid-friendly, but very yummy.) Prepared the bay and sage salt on Sunday, too (fresh bay leaves and sage ground with kosher salt in a mortar and pestle). And picked up and salted the turkey last night. I'll pick up the bread at some point tonight, but that's the only remaining grocery item.
Our 14.7 pound heritage turkey, after a salty massage.
His sentence: three days in solitary fridge confinement, then execution by oven. (Yes, I have a slight obsession with Trader Joe's greek yogurt.)
Now just a little cooking and a little eating remain.
