Very untraditional Turkey Day at the Fire Direction Center this year.

No turkey, no football, no stuffing, no family other than our own little one.

Peep and I spent the whole day op at the mountain snowboarding. Peep was a monster; his teacher's words were "You're totally sick, li'l dude!", he loves it and wants to go back ASAP. I suck. There's no nice way to put it. Oh, well. There's always skiing.

While we were up shredding the slopes - or at least the Peep was - Missy and Mojo had a girly day in Portland that included lots of treats and more skating. Missy is apparently determined to become a little cliche adorable Asian ice princess. Which is, well, adorable. And she and her mom cooked up a honeybaked ham with lots of lovely sides and chocolate-dipped strawberries for dessert.So a feast WAS had here, and family joy was celebrated, and a Star Wars movie was watched, and now it's time for bed.

Hope you and yours had a holiday suffused with the love of those you love.

A belated Happy Thanksgiving.

I celebrated an immigrant's Thanksgiving by making cabbage rolls :)

Mmmm. I love cabbage rolls.

When you think about it, the whole turkey thing was probably pretty strange to those English immigrants in Plymouth. I'll bet they wished they had some roast goose or, even better, some beef. Their own version of cabbage rolls.

Well, Chief, whether cabbage rolls, or good ol'Scottish highland beef, considering the miserable failure the colonialist had at farming, and with two colonies already gone...anything that was edible was a welcome sight.

I, however, find cabbage rolls an intriguing idea of which I'm going to look up the recipe for.

Happy post-thanksgiving to everyone!
