    Happy Birthday new friend! :bounce: Sorry I'm a day late, but Turkey-day took all my attention :beer: ;)
    You are such a wonderful addition to ChefTalk. I'm so glad you're here.
    So did you have birthday cake with cranberry sauce?

    Emily, I am really (really!) touched. Thank you so much. Even brought a tear to my eye barrooooooo! :) I am so grateful that I found ChefTalk.

    I spent the day in the kitchen, and that was allright by me! Best place in the world, especially now that I am almost 100% again! I made the most incredible stuffing -- it was an accident really.... I'll write down the recipe and share in a bit. My cranberry sauce was actually pretty kickin' too, but I didn't have a cake :cry: The kitchen dogs all got lots of Thanksgiving scraps and woopses, so they are happy clams today. I am finally finished with the mounds of dishes and am making soup for my infirmed husband who decided to fly off his motorcycle and introduce his backside to a tree (nothing broken thank God!). All in all though, it is a beautiful day here on the delta after a lovely morning of mist and leaves falling. MUCH to be thankful for!

    I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, and are able to soak your feet today! ;)

    CHEERS!!!

    Sorry I missed it Botanique, but I hope your year to come is as kickin' as your cranberry sauce! ;)

    Botanique So I guess you're a Thanksgiving baby! Not too shabby. Apparently it wasn't a bad birthday and that's always a good thing. So let me join in and wish you a very happy belated birthday as well, and I hope the coming year is your best one yet!:bounce:

    Thank you! :smiles:

    My big dog patient is in bed, but healing well. I'm going to work on recipes and reviews today.

    Have a wonderful weekend, and take some time off for yourself if you can!

    XXXOOOO Cheers!

    ps Has there ever been an official chef talk party / get together?
