The storm yesterday didn’t hit us as hard as we thought it might, but we still ended up with about 4″ of snow which turned crunchy and icy overnight. The day has been beautifully bright and I am taking my time with the meal preparations. We are going to celebrate this evening with our elderly neighbor so there isn’t a whole lot of pressure. We usually get her to join us over here, but with the ice and snow out back, I think we are going to transport everything across the street. It will all be much easier in the end. Now if I can get this turkey to cook properly, all will be well. (I usually get a bird that is raised in Maine and fresh, but we ended up getting a frozen Hannaford bird this year. It’s not behaving itself in the oven yet). In spite of the turkey angst, it’s been a lovely, peaceful day. I hope everyone else is enjoying it as much as we are!
