So many of you are preparing tonight. Making pies. Peeling potatoes. Brining turkeys. Not me. It’s my husband’s year to pick what we do for Turkey Day and when he picks, we generally spend time with his aunt and her famous stuffing. But this year our plans are slightly different- specifics are not important- and it means that I am left with the task of making a few desserts, all of which can be done tomorrow morning.
So what did I do tonight?
Went out to dinner with a dear, lovely friend. Alone. No kids, no husband. Just me and a girlfriend with lots of food, drink and time to talk. It was glorious.
The food was good, too. We went to The Abby and, because we could, ordered all sorts of small plates to share. I also ordered Autumn Sangria (pears, pumpkin, apples, ginger, cinnamon, spiced rum, red wine). It was delicious.
We started with the Smoked Cod Fritters with Spicy Tarter Sauce.
