The Thanksgiving Post  
As some of you have already heard, I was offered a job this week, for which I am most thankful! I start in a little over a week.

Chocolate Cherry Brioche, I haz! It was so worth the work to make!! Nom nom!! Mum works 2-10 tonight, so wanted to make something special for her before she went to work.

Since mum works tonight, we're having Thanksgiving tomorrow instead. So tonight, I'm making Pumpkin Risotto for dinner.

To do still today: make a pumpkin pie and get turkey all fixed up to brine. I made a wagon load of fresh pumpkin puree day before yesterday, so will now have enough till next Thanksgiving, me thinks!

Was looking at netbooks on Amazon late last night and discovered season two and three of Psych were on sale for $12 each! Score!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American nearest and dearest! And to my other nearest and dearests, have a great weekend!

Thank you! The brioche and the risotto were both a hit. My mum was hoping for leftovers the next day, but no such luck [g]

Happy Thanksgiving. I'm on my little Dell Netbook now working on my HLH Shortcuts story.

Dinner today at the daughter's house. Your desserts sound amazing.

So very grateful things are working out for some of my friends. It's been a tough couple of years, hasn't it - for all of us? I am so ready for things to get better.

I so want a notebook. It's on my list of things to get when I have money again. First is a TV though. My current set is an old motel TV.

Yes, things need to be much better in 2010!

I love my little notebook.

You know, I said 2009 had to be better. It has and it hasn't. Hopeful about 2010.

I am so pleased you have a new job......
That is definitely something to be
thankful for given how many are unemployed.
We currently stand at almost 13% here in Oregon.

Thank you for the Thanksgiving greeting.
I just returned from a lovely meal with my family....
and although it has been cold, dreary and rainy it has not diminished
my day.

Your brioche sounds heavenly.
I still remember the brioche I had in Paris. One place in particular
sticks in my mind to this day despite how long ago it was.

I do love brioche!

I have not had brioche in ages. The particular place I recall
in Paris was on a hilly cobble stone side street in the famous
Montmartre district very near the Sacré-Coeur
In the window was a HUGE brioche. It was what first caught my eye.
Then when I went inside, there was nothing but brioche.
So wonderful and so fragrant.
I would love to return to Paris but not possible anymore.
