had so much fun we forgot the cranberries (until the next day)  
The menu worked out so amazing I want to go and do everything over again. But the fun of holiday cooking is getting to explore other things, so possibly not?

(and then, when we had everything again the next day, we also did orange-cranberry sauce!)

And, a Turkey Day Picspam:

elizabuffy and amber!

my mom!

deviled eggs (they do not last long with me around)

eb & pear/blue cheese tarts

me & eb!

mom & domino!

amber chopping ... apple? i think apple

the four ladies!

the four ladies and a man (this is boy!housemate for the curious)

DINNER! (and dessert)

four women at griffith park

the view at night from the observatory

As you may have noticed from the image up there (and the pics) I got to celebrate my turkey day with elizabuffy & my mom & amber! We had an amazing time - lots of eating, lots of (slightly unplanned) car riding, a planetarium show, an awesome silent movie, a bbc sherlock marathon, and seriously amazing company. Sadly EB & Amber took off this morning for other parts, but I get to keep mom for a couple more days. My brain is offline enough that I can't come up with the perfectest words to express how awesome the entire couple of days were, so you'll have to just take my word for it. For all this? I'm thankful.

*hugs you all*

That sounds - and looks - like a lovely few days off. :) Hurrah!

(Also, interesting to see what boy!housemate looks like!)

thanks darling - though it wasn't days off so much as days spent on cooking as opposed to reading for class! lolz.

and yes, the hard-to-catch boy!housemate (though i think he was in new years picspam too?)

Oh you guys look like you had the best time. (RECIPES! Thank you!) And I'm unbelievably jealous of that view from the observatory, omg.

We did indeed!! and recipies! they totally are yummy (especially the stuffing - and my mom hates stuffing and loved it ... oh, we did substitute pecans for celery just fyi). and that view is why the observatory is my favorite place in los angeles!

Ooh, ta for the tip! And yeah, I reckon if I lived in LA, I'd spend an ENORMOUS amount of time in Griffith. :P

Adam and Kris spend an enormous amount of time there (according to fanfic), so I just had to go. It was gorgeous!

Hahaha! I'm sure they do; the view of the stars is amazing. Griffith observatory was one of the reasons I first wanted to go to LA. I'm so glad you had a good time bunny! ♥

Speaking of (sorta)stars, Kate pointed out Nicholas Brendan's twin brother Kelly at the movie theater!

\o/ But did you see Fran? He's local around there somewhere. Venice, I think.
