Like Riding a Bicycle

Just like riding a bicycle, except the bike has been locked up so long you can’t find the key. You dig thru all your cabinets and try every last key you can find, the mystery keys you just can’t throw away. You try the keys you know would never work. Reopening cabinets over and over hoping the key just presents itself.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving! I started mine off rereading this Thanksgiving Toast. Always something new to glean from it.

I started my cooking Wednesday night. A cocktail accompaniment. Spiced cider, bourbon, maple syrup and  Garam Masala bitters. Delightful!


French silk pie complete. A day in the fridge does this pie good.

French Silk Pie

I spent my morning sipping hot coffee and watching the movie Julie & Julia. A perfect movie for a holiday celebrating food. Though, it made me nostalgic for the time when blogging was more personal story telling and less portraying a simulated perfection for monetization. It was the kick in the butt I needed to finally to get back here.

Yep, just like riding a bicycle. Thankful for that.

    Happy Thanksgiving! Your cocktail looks and sounds divine! I hope you and your family have a wonderful day! Scott just finished making two pans of stuffing, while I am working. Heading to my sisters in a bit. Small crew of just 8 since Jack is in Europe. Your pie looks amazing! Glad to see you are back here, wish I could do it again, I loved my “journal”! Cheers!
