  •  Thanksgiving for the cats and me (5+ / 0-)

    I live alone--well, with four adopted stray cats who are now indoor cats and two more who are on their way inside before the weather turns bitter cold. And I feed assorted others daily.

    I'm recovering from back surgery, so I've cooked a bit each day.

    Tuesday I cooked fresh turnip greens. (I'm Southern.)

    I baked a seven-pound turkey breast yesterday--and the kitties and I give it thumbs (and paws) up.

    Today I'll make sweet potatoes--the boiled til soft then mashed with lots of butter, cinnamon, and a little dash of vanilla method.

    I can't eat gluten, so the sweet potatoes will double as desert.

    I'll spend the day chilling with my feline friends, chatting on the phone with my human ones and my long-distance family, and being thankful that we don't have a Republican president. I'll also be thankful for the gifts of good memories, good family, and--lousy back and celiac disease aside--reasonably good health otherwise.
