Mickey Monday

As expected I didn't make a lot of progress this week, but after all it was Thanksgiving!  With both girls home, lots of shopping to do, and a turkey to roast, well, I had other priorities.  And I have to say, my turkey was delicious.  I immersed it in a homemade brine for 24 hours before roasting it.  It turned out so moist and flavorful.  I'll definitely do that again.

We skipped Black Friday shopping and opted for Saturday - a very wise decision.  The crowds were minimal and there were still plenty of good deals.  All in all, a great Thanksgiving week.

The only casualty was my foot.  On Thanksgiving night a frozen mac and cheese casserole decided to jump out of the freezer and attack my foot.  It hasn't slowed me down, but I may get it x-rayed today.
