Thanksgiving Menu

| | Comments (0)

Before I put the whole Thanksgiving feast to rest I thought I'd post the menu we enjoyed this year. It was perfectly executed and everything went together quite well, including Mr. H's wine choices. Sadly, do you think we could get our hands on an actual camera to immortalize the groaning table before we tore into it? This house holds no less than five, but the best we (all) could do was capture the setting in our (3) cellphones. There oughta' be a law! I will not embarrass myself by trying to post one of those images (ick!)

I have yet another correction to post. The gingerbread house contest Suzanne is entering is being held at Chelsea Market, not Javits. The registration paperwork came through with ensuing details. The event is officially titled: The 4th Annual Gingerbread Homes for Animals, New York City 2006. Info can be found here. However, it does not appear that their site has been updated with the 2006 event info as of this posting; 2005 is still online. We were very interested in viewing some of the previous gingerbread house entries to get some idea of how the competition might stack up for this year. Suzanne has agreed to let me blog the creation of the Moose's entry, so stay tuned...

Gingerbread Moose

One of the things I like to do with my time is cook. Another is eat chocolate. Yet a third would be talking to people. This comes together nicely when I go to The Chocolate Moose in town to "work". It's really quite odd, calling it work. I don't get paid, not in the monetary sense, but I can eat whatever I please, and I do bring home the "factory seconds" for my family to enjoy.

Suzanne, the owner and chief inspiration for all things good and sweet that are found in the long antique confection cases, is entering a gingerbread contest. The edible artwork will be on display during December in the Jacob Javits Convention Center in NYC. (I remember meeting the man as a child.) I am pleased (and very excited) to announce that I will be assisting in the creation of the Moose's entry. I may even drive down next month to deliver it! We could be famous!!!

Back to reality. I have decided that I will chronicle the creation of the creation. See it all here, real soon.

Math has never been my forte', but that's what they say does the trick. Paste in about 500 words of text which you authored, and watch them predict your gender at this site. I prefer to believe it's magic.
