Have never made a real, whole turkey before. Thank goodness for Food Network & Alton Brown & the internet.
In the Middle Of: baking a pie for Doug's office party tomorrow. Buttermilk Coconut, to be exact. One of my personal favorites. Although, chances are good that if it's pie - it's one of my personal favorites.
sneaky self-portrait, too.
Annoyed With: I cut my thumb on an egg shell whilst baking said pie. Seriously?! Who cuts their finger open on an EGG? Anyway, I didn't even realize that I was bleeding until I went to yell at Zooey for barking incessantly, rubbed my fingers because they were wet, and realized I was smearing red all over. Of course, then I panicked, thinking I had bled all over this pie (um, hope none of Doug's co-workers know I have a blog). Thankfully, all ingredients were fine, but my towel had blood streaks all over it. You're welcome for that mental image, Internet.
Excited About: Other than Thanksgiving Day, NO PLANS this loooooong weekend! Maybe getting our Christmas tree?
Thinking: Can not WAIT to listen to Christmas music. And decorate for Christmas.
Reading: Still working on Scandalous, by D.A. Carson, about the power of the crucifixion and resurrection. Also still reading character diaries for The Crucible. Which were turned in weeks ago. I am a terrible teacher.
Watching & Listening To: I've watched & listened to the "Singing in the Rain/Umbrella" mash up from Glee last week way too many times... and still can't get enough.
Cooking: see picture above. Pretty pumped about my Thanksgiving menu. Minus the turkey. Although, if Doug can install a dishwasher by watching a DIY video, I can cook a stinking turkey.
Eating: Recently loving cilantro leaves in Caesar salad.
Missing: Becca - finally caught up last night. Hoping to see her & the other D.C. girls in March!
Wearing: walk-a-thon shirt
Heading Off: to check my pie...
