Hodu l'Adonai Ki Tov

Happy Thanksgiving, go and learn a little.

Bought a turkey breast, put it in the Crock Pot at ten A.M with some apple juice and onions and let it go. No carving necessary. No making stock from the carcass necessary. Only problem is getting it out of the pot in sufficiently large sections. That, and no crispy skin. But otherwise, good.

Also made yam with molasses and apricot jam. And stuffing. Messed up a bit with the stuffing. They SAID to put in a bouillon cube. I think they meant a Gentile-style bouillon cube. I put in one of the Telma soup cubes, and only when I tasted the intense saltness of the stuffing did I realize that they meant one of those dinky things smaller than a sugar cube.

We also had roasted corn out of a bag, and cranberry sauce shaped like the can it came out of. There is a pie waiting for us to digest a bit. There is a pile of dishes.

The fella also had two cans of black olives.

Earlier in the day, I made sweet and sour cabbage soup for the first time, and it came out beautifully. Sadly, the fella would eat sweet and sour cabbage soup only if his life depended on it. Maybe not then. So I will have to eat all of it myself.

I'm not complaining.

Happy belated thanksgiving!

I will NEVER crock a turkey, cause I live for crispy skin! And lashings of gravy.

I had cabbage rolls and boiled potatoes (don't ask why), my granny's recipe.

So, personal question, no need to answer. Family very far away??????

Another even more personal question: the soup sounds delicious. Am wangling for the recipe!
