Many thanks to Katie, Paul and Keith (& Alex) for noms and hosting last night. It was a traditional Caspell dins with a fresh turkey (wonderful sausage stuffing), mashed potatoes, mashed turnips and carrots, cranberry sauce and brussels sprouts. BrOJeff and Rob Warner also joined us, who was wearing a very festive hat and suspenders and brought tales of Solstice cheer. It was a happy and lowkey meal and I have to thank Katie for making a spectacular bird, which is now resting comfortably in the souppot here. It was so beautiful I took a picture of it, but that was also to commemorate that it was in Granny’s roasting pan which is still chugging along, having seen many roasts come and go over the last 75 years.

How could I forget the gravy?

Job interview isn’t happening this morning. I’m almost glad, I still feel stuffed from last night.
