First I want to point out the "Turkey Day Live" thread in Home Cooking (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/926031.) This is a little more specific so I thought I'd open a new thread on a traditional Thanksgiving theme, the 5th quarter review. It's still early here on the west coast (and at home where I usually am, people are just getting up to begin their adventure. Still, enough time to have a few boo-boos.
I'm in mom's kitchen. She alphabetizes her spices. Ground Cinammon and Ground Cumin are in identical containers right next to each other. She was talking, I was making pie. Fortunately it was the pumpkin pie not the apple pie, so i tossed in a little chili powder and when everyone comments on the spicy flavor I'll just pretend it was a recipe I saw somewhere. Luckily we don't usually put much cinnamon in the pumpkin pie. I won't get into how two cubes of butter ended up on the kitchen floor instead of in the pies. How did your Thanksgiving go?
