Hangin' with Mr. Kuper

My dad is making bread in my kitchen! Right now! He doesn't need a recipe; he can do it by feel. I'm not quite at that level of kitchen-fu yet, but I just got done making split-pea soup, which also doesn't require a recipe. Carrots, celery, olive oil, split peas, salt, pepper, water, thyme, and time. And it turns out that cranberry sauce is the easiest thing ever: Boil a cup of sugar and a cup of water; add a pound of cranberries; boil again; chill.

I might feel differently tomorrow, when it's time to actually roast the chickens, and I'm admittedly getting help from other people who are bringing things like pie and salad. Still, right now, I'm feeling like this Thanksgiving thing really isn't all that impossible to pull off after all. And Maya leadsynth and Mike mrr get here in a few hours! Yay!
