Happy Thanksgiving

Bread will soon be baking in the oven. Then it's time to make some Cranberry-Chipotle Chutney and prep the root vegetable medley (sweet potatoes, rutabagas, carrots and onions) that will get popped into the already hot oven after being tossed in extra virgin olive oil, lightly salted, with fresh sage and rosemary. Later we'll take a short walk down the street for a great dinner at the home of our friends. They've slaughtered a handsome heritage breed turkey (Naragansett) for our meal and it too will soon be in the oven roasting.

Beer, you ask? What beer will we be drinking today? On the menu is Ska Brewing Company Nefarious Ten Pin, a very good Baltic Porter, along with Ommegang Brewery Three Philosophers, an excellent quadruppel that the Beer Advocate says is:
Drop dead in complexity, a sipping brew and certainly something you would want to pair with rather than drinking it alone.
Give them a try and tell me what you think.

Our girls are excited to wear fancy dresses and go visit our friends who have a daughter about the same age. They love Thanksgiving almost as much as I do. Thanksgiving turkey is always the best turkey.

Have a good'un.
