things i'm thankful for...& the yummy *menu*

...where do i even start? let's see. maybe broader thankfulness is better...& these are not in any order whatsoever...

*my family -- they are wonderful & in virginia ;(
*my friends -- spread across the country, and globe...i wish i could be near them always.
*my little business sproutland wipes me out, & brings me lots of joy & stress - i love it!
*my 'real' job -- i do love this also. most of the time. my students can be quite obnoxious, & then say the best things *ever*
*my doggie -- dixie loo is about the craziest darn thing that's happened in my life lately - & i adore her!
*living in san francisco -- the best weather, the best scenery, the best goings-ons...& i get to still be here; yay!
*let's see...the roof over my head, a few pennies in the bank (& i do mean a *few* - ha!), & the plentiful food of which too much goes into this here belly...
*geez...i could go on forever...reading good books, perusing good books, buying good books to have & to fit just right for your mood...looking at art, finding art, making art, being around art.
*& i'm thankful for the my most favorite him. couldn't make it w/o him.

there ya have it. & now on to that yummy menu, of which, too much will be fattening up my buddha belly...

here's my overly ambitious menu -- to start: pumpkin bread in the morning (from scratch of course...), apps: stuffed mushroom caps, almond covered cheese ball w/ stoned wheat crackers, tomato & feta & basil toothpick snackies & the wine starts now too!...the courses: broiled wild king salmon w/ lemon, olive oil & old bay seasoning, mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, sage & pecan stuffing, fresh green beans w/ dill butter, acorn squash, rosemary-cheddar cheese buttermilk biscuits...ending off: pecan pie (okay, bought this one from whole foods - it's dee-lish, i already had a piece...shhh...), lemon tartlets - making these from coast tea from the u.k. ;) yum. i'm full already! followed by a healthy long walk down by the bay bridge!! & then a HUGE nappie...

...i will also be introducing my new apprentice & sous-chef in pictures to come...until then, have an absolutely fabulous thanksgiving!! mwah!
