ndnickerson: (addams thanksgiving)
My sister and brother-in-law are visiting, and they eat carbs, so we did have a few normal things (Stovetop stuffing, cloverleaf [brown and serve] rolls, sweet potato souffle, macaroni and cheese, jellied cranberry sauce) but I didn't eat any of the "full-carb" dishes.

Our menu:
-Roasted turkey (which Mom just does however she wants every year, and it includes salt, pepper, butter, poultry seasoning if we have it, and a light dusting of flour)
-Spiral sliced ham
-Sausage and sage stuffing (which requires 8 slices of Atkins Cuisine bread)
-Cauliflower-Sour Cream Mash
-Atkins Cornbread
-Steamed broccoli
-Cran-raspberry sauce
-Deviled eggs (made southern style)
-Maple Pecan Pie

I haven't tried the pecan pie yet, but Dad said it was good.

I made the pie, boiled the eggs, and made the Atkins Cuisine bread last night - and ended up getting to bed at 4 a.m. What have I learned? Nothing, really. The stuffing was just a touch wetter than I usually want it, so I'll cut down on the chicken broth next time, but on the whole, everything was excellent this year. I'm so glad the Atkins bake mix got here yesterday.

Hope everyone who is celebrating is having a good one! :) If not, happy Thursday!

yuletease!

so my original recipient managed to leave a comment and LOVED the story but, since i somehow have some sort of underscore-glitch going on with mine, i didn't get a notification for my own gift and the server keeps dying, so i'm going to go to sleep and hope this all gets sorted out in the meantime.

(but YAY MY RECIPIENT LOVED THE STORY. THANK GOD.)

it's almost 3 a.m. here on the east coast. Merry Christmas!

001. for all my nancy drew-loving friends, the nancy drew yuletide post is open over at [livejournal.com profile] nancydrewfic. go sign up if you'd like some nancy drew fic for Christmas. =)

002. road house is on. nothing else is. also mike nelson says this is the greatest bad movie ever made, so here i am. (also: why is it that women in these movies are always very well dressed, while the men definitely aren't? if i went to a bar like that, i'd walk right back out the door.)

003. i've written my dear yuletide santa letter, if anyone is doing what i do and going around reading other people's out of curiosity.

004. saw 2012 this afternoon. so many talented actors, such a hilariously bad movie. well, there was the one part that felt kind of like a ride at universal. otherwise, NO.

that's it, really. i've just gotten through a pretty stressful week, and things should be pretty cool for a while. and i might have houseguests for thanksgiving! i'm too naive to be anything more than excited about it. ;)
