I decided to spatchc00k our turkey this year because our apartment gets really hot if the oven is on too long (thank you Martha Stewart). Naturally it looked much easier, in the pictures of her magazine, to cut out the backbone and break the breastbone of a turkey:
But it turned out okay. In fact, it was terribly juicy and scrumptious. I will probably spatchcook every year from now on. Also, I made Pioneer Woman's sweet potato recipe and it was AMAZING. Sweet potatoes are now my favorite food.
The Harveys came down from Seattle to visit us. Van is almost as big as Nanette. (Craig declared that she had shrunk, which she appreciated). We missed the Thomsons this year; sadly Hannah is fighting off The Dread Disease. But Nan insisted we take them dinner, and so they got to have some yummy food at least.
terribly sorry about the sad lack of posting. Witness my declaration that henceforth it shall improve and shall also be interesting, inspiring, or funny.
