I won't be out wandering Saratoga's woods and waterways until at least next Monday. Home duties are keeping me close to my stove getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner at in-laws over in Vermont, then home Thursday night with eight extra family members in tow. Five more arrive on Saturday, when we'll all celebrate my husband's birthday. The birthday cake I made is in the freezer, along with the birthday dinner. Now I have to round up sheets and blankets and pillows and towels for 13 overnight guests. Luckily we all love each other and don't mind snuggling up close. Even our grand-dog gets along well with our three cats. (But the cats definitely do NOT snuggle up with the dog!)
Today I made five pies: cherry, cherry-apricot, pumpkin, and two rustic apple-raisin tarts. Aren't they pretty? (But you should see the mess in the rest of the kitchen!)
Happy Thanksgiving, all!
