I’m not going to complain about Daylight Savings–I promise. BUT, all of the sudden, it’s winter in Chicago. I’ll mildly about that because it’s TOO SOON. I was driving along on Monday, just feeling happy and seeing the bright and beautiful leaves were still on the trees and outside it was a perfect 54 degrees out. Then a windy storm came and blew all the gorgeous leaves off the trees and it’s been 38 degrees ever since. No, please–not ready..and it’s might snow. I like my snow in December, please (although, Chicago loves a good April snow storm).
Time to celebrate the highs: I’m staying busy with work and my passion project, renovation is moving along (albeit slowly and there have been bumps, but it’s all to be expected) the kids are loving fall (they couldn’t get enough of Halloween), we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving and the holidays. I’m hosting Thanksgiving and our house and while I love to cook, I’ve never made a turkey. Roast chicken, yes, but a turkey seems a lot more intense; I feel the pressure. Any tips on turkey making? I know I need to invest in a meat thermometer, but anything else you’d recommend (that you can’t find in a recipe)?
