Preparing for Thanksgiving. Have finished cranberry sauce with tangerine, turnips, sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes. Chopped onions and celery for stuffing. Slivered and toasted almonds for Brussels sprouts. Cut finger. Dishwasher sprung a leak, repairman can't come until middle of next week. Wanted to make the apple and pumpkin pies this morning, but woke up to no power and cell phone was out of juice. Not a great start, fingers crossed that things improve.
