Dinner today was the traditional. I brined a turkey breast section last night and cooked it today; we had real mashed potatos, real gravy, carrots, and crescent rolls.
The turkey didn't have a popper in it (it was supposed to) so I had to dig out a meat thermometer, but that wasn't really much trouble and the turkey was cooked to near perfection. Tender, juicy, and flavorful.
I made plenty of gravy this time and we actually have leftover. Whee!
Otherwise, we didn't do anything today and we liked it.
Well--we watched the Thanksgiving ep of WKRP in Cincinnati before I started cooking, and after dinner we watched The Incredibles, and the first half of Christmas in Connecticut before I had enough energy to get up off the sofa and go to the computer.
Tomorrow--hoo boy. I'm glad I got a lot of rest today, because tomorrow is going to be something else. Saturday and Sunday are not going to be any picnics, either, especially after tomorrow; most of my hours for the week are concentrated in those three days.
I'll live, though.
Unlike comet ISON, which came apart while rounding the sun. It would have been a sight to behold if it had survived--but seeing as its perihelion was a mere 744,000 miles, well...not much could get that close to the sun and survive the trip, particularly not a "dirty snowball".
Well, anyway, the holiday season is off and running, and the "black Friday" sales have already begun, and some of my coworkers are--even now--manning the registers.
Wish me luck, tomorrow.
