A random list on a “short, easy holiday work week”

The hat I made for the hubby’s birthday was too big. Thanks Rebecca for the suggestion of washing/drying it. It’ll either shrink enough to fit either him or myself. I was on the verge of ripping it out and starting over. Not good.

 I’m annoyed/insulted that the car dealership only offered me $200 for my beloved car. So it’s only a1999 Plymouth Neon, but it’s been well taken care of, it’s super clean on the inside thanks to my Type A skills and it’s been loved much. They so don’t deserve Leon the Neon.

 If anyone one in the greater Seattle metro area needs a used car that runs well and has a cd player, drop me an email.

 I’ve lost the recipe for the one dish I was signed up to make tomorrow: homemade cranberry sauce. I know it calls for cranberries, sugar and apple cider vinegar. The rest is a bit of mystery.

Note to self: Google cranberry sauce. Don’t wing it for a family holiday dinner (that last quote courtesy of the hubby.)

Got another massive work project dumped on my plate yesterday.

I may be getting an intern next year to help me out. Am thankful that my boss has recognized that I’m beginning to get just a wee bit overwhelmed with work.

I have to write a show script, find a location for another show and deal with a few other fires before my plane leaves in just a few hours. No problem.

Here’s to a happy, healthy Thanksgiving with not so questionable cranberry sauce and a good bottle of wine to recoup from this “short and easy holiday” week!

Sounds like you've got your hands full, Meg. Sorry to hear it. I hope your flights and Thanksgiving are peaceful.

Here's a recipe for fresh cranberry sauce from my files. It doesn't have cider vinegar - but is excellent:

Happy Thanksgiving, friend.

Hope everything ended up calm, fun, and refreshing for your time in Les Bois! Happy belated Thanksgiving!

Cranberry Sauce--I don't eat it, but I do make it, and here's the recipe that DH loves:

12 oz fresh cranberries
1 cup orange juice
1 cup brown sugar (I always use dark).

Dissolve the sugar in the orange juice, then add the cranberries. Bring to a low boil and simmer while they pop, about 10 minutes. Cool a little so it gets thicker and serve warm.

I just noticed this is really late for Thanksgiving , but I do it at Christmas, too.
