About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
Making it through my first Thanksgiving dinner without any food poisoning, complaints or undercooked turkey
My cooking tragedies
My second Thanksgiving turkey was green when I unwrapped it. Note: do not store turkey in garage in lieu of fridge space, it is NOT the same thing. ANYWAY, panic ensued, quick argument with dh as to the likelihood of the green just being something perfectly normal. Even did an internet search on 'green turkey' but the results weren't good, sooooo...a quick trip to the grocery store for a cheap replacement. Initial turkey = organic, led a happy life, 14lbs. Replacement turkey = closest it came to organic was probably when it ate poop, doubtful on the happiness, 24lbs. People were giving thanks that they got fed before midnight.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad
This tasted good the night I made it but it tasted awesome, cold, the next day! I had no black beans so used butter beans instead and they were a nice texture compliment to all the crunchy veggies. So simple, but so great (and healthy!)

Tomato-Curry Lentil Stew
I did add a little cider vinegar after tasting it towards the end of cooking and finding it somewhat bland, but it ended up tasting great and my kids even had seconds! It was extra yummy with a cheeky blob of sour cream on the top.

Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting
I followed the instructions exactly and it turned out wonderfully. Even the frosting was just sweet enough to add to the flavor but not too sweet that I scraped it off (as I usually do.) Thanks so much!
