Hangin' with Mr. Kuper [Nov. 22nd, 2006|06:17 pm]
Lindsey 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!

is ur thanksgiving the sort of event where a body could make a brief-ish appearance? (particularly a living somebody scavenging food from various feasts?)

How about this: call me when you're out and about today. I'm worried about a food shortage, but it might be an irrational fear.

Sounds like fun - I just finished making cranberry sauce myself, albeit with some orange juice thrown into the mix as well). I now await the finishing of the cake, wondering if I will suffer some dreadful penalty for not having pumpkin on Thanksgiving :). (We've had so much pumpkin-ish food lately that we decided to branch out. With luck the kitchen gods will understand).

Thanks! I do have my mom, and she's in Mom Mode, so I think we'll be okay. But I'll call you if we need backup. ;)

Breads are the most forgiving of the baked goods.

All I ended up eating for Thanksgiving was mashed potatoes, but I was also hell fried, so it was all my fault.
