A good Thanksgiving

We had some friends over, we cooked, we ate well, we watched football. All in all, a great way to spend a Thursday.

The highlight of the meal for me was the challah stuffing I made, based on a recipe I found on The Internet. The trick was in soaking the bread first before mixing in the sauteed onions and mushrooms; after baking it came out in one giant piece that could be served in chunks, like a cake. That's some good stuffing. The turkey turned out well, too, but turkey's not that hard to get right. Our friends brought over mac & cheese that was superb. Dessert was homemade pumpkin and pecan pies, also brought by our guests. My only disappointment is that I didn't pass out in my new Ikea armchair after dinner. There's plenty of time for that over the rest of the weekend, and over the lifespan of the chair, of course.
