It's All In The Freezer
He was off on a business trip to LA, but called me from his hotel on Thursday night to complain about Survivor. He has taken a dislike to the Amy contestant, a common reaction, and does not like the way the women are voting off all the men. Not too many likeable people on the show this time. This TV season there are three shows I am enjoying: Survivor, sort of, Amazing Race, which looks to be excellent, and Lost, which is odd but interesting. I like having something to look forward to after a day at the office.
Today I am making a pot roast of pork, just because I am sick of turkey already and it isn't even Thanksgiving yet. I went to Costco today and bought a cranberry/apple cobbler and a chocolate mocha cake, both now residing in the freezer, saying silently to me "you will be knitting instead of cooking on Thanksgiving". The cake is a Just Desserts cake and looks very delicious except that it fell over in the car and the rosettes are smooshed, but I will just take it out of the container , smooth the frosting out and put it in my tupperware container, as if I baked it. I also got giant cans of green beans for the obligatory casserole.
The ladies at work were telling me that the after-Thanksgiving sandwich is very good with stuffing in it, something I have never tried. I remember a plot line on Friends about this kind of sandwich. I will have to give it a try this year. I already went out and bought squishy bread for him to have his sandwich on because homemade bread is just not the same.
Today is sunny, finally. I was driving around doing my errands and enjoying the fall color. Even the mailman was cheerful when I was out sweeping the leaves off the front walk. No word from C & S about Thanksgiving yet. If you want people to bring stuff, you should tell them ahead of time. Well, I am covered for the dessert, and have plenty of green beans and mushroom soup, so who cares? I invited the EGs over for lunch after church tomorrow, but they are going to go visit the famous Anna Mae. This is excellent, because I invited and get brownie points for being a good daughter-in-law, but they turned me down, so I don't have to do any of the work! I just told EG that I would just keep the corned beef in the freezer, and she sighed a little, so I know she will be missing the corned beef. That is a real meat-and-potatoes woman.
My pork is smelling terrific, so I better go stir it and whip up some applesauce cake.
