Thanksgiving - I'm not feelin' it this year.

I don't know what's wrong with me. But I'm just not into Thanksgiving this year. Actually, I do know what it is. We're not going anywhere and we're not having everyone over. I should be planning, shopping, cooking - and I'm not. Don doesn't want a big dinner, and I obviously don't want to cook a bunch of food for just three people. But we have to eat something. So what to do.

I made a boneless turkey breast one year. It was ok. Maybe I'll look for a new recipe and try that. I don't know. But I better figure it out. Thanksgiving is tomorrow. Zoiks.

I don't know about you, but my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving are smoked turkey, parmesan mashed potatoes, home-made cranberry sauce, warm rolls and pecan pie with home-made whipped cream. Maybe I'll do just that. Keep it simple.

Elli will be really disappointed if we don't do something to celebrate. She's been learning all about the pilgrims and indians and what it means to give thanks. Check her out in her cute poncho. This was hand-made for her by a friend in Napa. We have so many people and so much to be thankful for.

Including my friend Rob Jensen at Testerossa. We'll be drinking his fantastic Pinot Noir wine on Thanksgiving. So what else will the mister and I be drinking? If my dad were here we'd start with bloody mary's or mimosa's. I've got some sparkling ready for that. mmmm. Then we'll move to wine in the afternoon.

Ok. I think I'm startin' to feel it. Better get shopping!
