After the excitement of an unplanned cat bath, the Thanksgiving meal actually went quite well. We dined among some stray boxes, but all happily ignored them. With a little help from nearby Andronico's Market, we had a traditional Thanksgiving meal. I even used this as the first opportunity to use our silver and several wedding gifts.
The vintage oven proved rather useful for simultaneously heating the turkey at one temperature and cooking the sweet potatoes & stuffing at another.
We even attempted (and succeeded if you ask me) to make a Tarte Tatin, which, tho simple, is apparently a dessert which intimidates many people. For me, I'll make this any day over a pie - much less work, fewer ingredients! Also, a great excuse to break in the cast iron skillet.
