Book 2 copy edits are coming along, but this is Thanksgiving week! There’s some serious food going on this week.
We are sharing Thanksgiving this year with friends. I said I will make the cranberry sauce, a green salad, and a chocolate mocha pecan pie (and maybe a regular pecan pie too, because once you start one pecan pie, it’s easy enough to just make two).
We’re frying a turkey — or rather, the guys are frying a turkey — and other guests are bringing all kinds of dishes.
So how can I concentrate on copy edits?! This is food week!
1 1/2 c sugar
1/4 c water
1/2 c raspberry vinegar
bag o’ cranberries
Mix the first three ingredients and dissolve sugar over medium heat. Add cranberries and everything else. Stir to coat, and then let simmer for 10-15 minutes, partially covered, til cranberries burst. Let cool. This cranberry sauce turns leftover turkey and stuffing sandwiches into the best. leftovers. ever.
I’m a Yankee. I never got the pecan pie love til I moved down here. This is pretty good, plus chocolate! Coffee!
