Oh, my, I missed the candy, turkey cookies, and half moons - I bet they must be all gone by now...
Enjoyed reading all your goings on, and I missed being part of it. Lostgrouse, I'm glad you could log in while you were away - you had better luck than I did. I tried and tried from different paths and using 2 different browsers.
Pingo, so happy you are thrilled with the crust!! I was hoping to see photos of your pies. I saw your pecan came out "A+," but I didn't see a description of what you thought of the pumpkin cream - a keeper? I guess you must have loved the crust recipe to use it for the turkey pie. Yum! Flakey and easy, as promised?
My pies were well received, and my mom had made an amazing flourless chocolate cake. Both lasted for the 4 of us to have dessert every night. TG meal was OK, but the highlight was just being there.
Glad to have everyone back. Pingo, enjoy PB son 'til he returns Tuesday. How was your day in Boston?
Nov, how are you feeling?
Winter, isn't it funny how sometimes birds take longer than others when they are the same weight, same temp, etc? I've found that, too. I still need to buy a new meat thermometer...
BG, how is DD doing? Holidays are hard for her condition especially after a loss.
mm, hope those dealing with loss in your circle are doing well, considering.
Thanks for everyone's well wishes for our trip - it was well worth the 9 hours both ways. The rain on the way down wasn't too bad; it ended 1/2 way there. The way back was nondescript. We got the house up to 63 before we went to bed.
Glad to be home. Must unpack.
