Cooking can be risky business. Several factors can increase the risk exponentially.
- Cooking while half asleep early in the morning.
- Cooking while over-caffeinated on freshly ground super hot French Roast coffee and further hyper-ized by eating pecan pie at the same time.
- Cooking while talking on the phone to relatives and friends, drinking coffee, eating pecan pie and chopping squash to cook for the squash casserole.
- Cooking with one’s laptop on the kitchen counter.
- Cooking and blogging at the same time, while also drinking coffee, eating pecan pie, talking to friends and relatives on the phone, and chopping squash.
This is a Thanksgiving Day blogging/cooking experiment! Messy, challenging, fun with a small disaster or two most likely thrown in, and perhaps some unexpectedly delightful morsels, lots of hugs, and hopefully I won’t spill anything into the laptop which fries it like southern fried chicken. I did this once with ice tea on January 1 of 2000. Only a few drops, but ssssssstt! and that was the end of that motherboard.
I’m going to just blog on the fly and post without editing, spell checking or any of the other usual niceties.
Weather note: A cold front came rolling in last night just in time to bring my favorite Thanksgiving weather. Here in northwest Florida late November can be 80 degrees or freezing. Today will be just perfect: it’s about 50 right now, at 8:30 a.m.
Time to chop some onions! More later! Hope you’re having a great day, too.
