promise and beauty

Thanksgiving day brought a promise.

When you look with the right eyes you can see the beauty everyday.

. . .and action!

or what we believe is, in the

chai and quichey pie

This weekend I made a quiche, rocky road brownies, pastry puff wrapped brie and feta dip with scallions.  I started playing around with Photoshop while looking through Computer Tricks for Scrapbooking.  Spent time with my honey.  Went shopping for Thanksgiving stuff.  We are going to make sage butter-roasted turkey with cider gravy (recipe from Bon Appetit).  I drank chai, 21st Street house blend coffee, and planned my turkey meal timeline.  I have never cooked the turkey day meal before, so I am trying to get as organized as I can.  I also watched all the Martha Stewart on-demand videos on how to make a turkey.  Please note, Martha's turkeys NEVER have a pop-up timer, because she raises her own turkeys.  I want to be like Martha Stewart when I grow up.

While I was taking a walk this morning. . .

What's playing in the Ipod today. . .
