Happy Thanksgiving!

Its Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays. I’m in Ohio, visiting family in Cleveland and Canton. Driving out here Tuesday night was quite the adventure, there’s nothing like a minor snow storm on the Pennsylvania turn pike. When we finally did arrive at 1:30am, the driveway was slick and my car couldn’t make it up! There’s nothing like shoveling a driveway at 1:30am. There’s snow on the ground here–something that is a fact of life in Cleveland but inconceivable back in DC.

Yesterday I baked pies. Two plus a small mini-pie. Pumpkin. Used the recipe on the side of the pumpkin can, and made my own crust, its nice and flaky.

Have a happy Thanksgiving.
