I'm bummed because I don't know if we'll be having Second Thanksgiving next week. We'll be in the midst of reno, our house is a total disaster, and I really would like to have a lot of our stuff packed by then. We'll do it at some point before Christmas, I'm sure, but probably not next week.
I heard this story on All Things Considered on my way home, about Thanksgiving trends in food magazines, and I definitely want to include this carrot mash (maybe...it has mint in it) and also a bruleed pumpkin pie. Just thinking about it makes me even MORE SAD that our meal won't be next week! Waah!
