Just another day

Our Thanksgiving meal was delicious. I didn't take any photos, but Ken did and I'm sure he'll post some soon. Now it's on to the leftovers. A whole leg of lamb for two people is a lot. Today we'll probably have cold slices of the roast with mayonnaise. Later, some of it will get chopped up for an hachis parmentier (a shepherd's pie).

A last burst of fall color as we move toward December.

And speaking of pies, I made a pumpkin pie for dessert. I thawed out more pumpkin than I needed for the pie, so we ate some with butter, salt, and pepper, alongside the lamb. We also had peas, carrots, and mushrooms. Now I've got to get moving. I have an appointment with my doctor early this morning. Just a routine visit to renew my blood pressure and cholesterol prescriptions.


  1. Your birds yesterday were a small family group of cranes [Grus grus]

  2. Dinner sounds delicious. We had turkey breasts, without meaning to observe Thanksgiving. Our Rx renewals have been over the phone during the pandemic. It’s made made things easy and will be an adjustment when we have to actually see the doctor again.

  3. The muted colors in this photo are beautiful. It will be turkey sandwiches for us today.

  4. I'm glad I made a wonderful pork roast, but I wish I had turkey left overs :) Can't have it both ways!

  5. tim, I've seen several groups now, and they are all silent. Didn't you tell me that they make noise when flying?

    mitch, we could get Rx's refilled without seeing the doctor during our last lockdown. I don't know if they're still doing that, but I saw the doctor anyway. They space appointments out so there aren't too many people in the waiting room. I was the only one on Friday.

    bettyann, yum!

    judy, nope. We have lamb leftovers. :)

  6. Lamb for Thanksgiving sounds amazing!

  7. mark, we've been doing lamb for T-day for decades. This year's was very tasty!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
