I survived the Berkeley Bowl!

idasusan helped SAVE THE DAY by offering space in her trash can so I would have a little room in mine left for Thursday. Many, many thanks. It was quite pleasant visiting with her.

I should have adjusted my schedule and picked up the bird right afterwards (she lives on the block that had the back parking lot entry to the OLD Bowl). I went after my acupuncture appointment in Orinda. It was bad (I had to park south of Ashby) but my planning ahead on other purchases made it easy. I had the list and carried the turkey around in my large canvas bag, freeing up handbasket room.

I got a 12.5 instead of a 14# bird, so no worries about its fitting in my pan.

Saw huge stalks of brussels sprouts (for a whopping $1.99 each) and thought of ayse. We will have LOTS of green veg this Thanksgiving.

Tonight I brine the turkey, dip truffles, make tapenade and spiced nuts, and do the turkey broth if I have time. Otherwise that goes tomorrow morning.

I should also count silverware tonight.

I sure hope I don't have to go into a grocery tomorrow!

glad to be of service. Too bad you didn't just go to the bowl while you were here. You could have left the car parked here and not had to walk quite so far with your turkey!

Truffles, did you say? MMMM. Wishing you a happy T-day.

Back atcha!

I am going to suggest washing the dinner plates for dessert. We will have truffles, pumpkin cheesecake, apple pie, and strawberry-cherry pie. It is a dessert extravaganza.

Although the truffles often go round with coffee and/or liqueur right after dinner.

You went to Berkeley Bowl the week of Thanksgiving? You are a braver woman than I. Shudder. I mean, I love the Bowl, but the hand-to-hand-to-cart-to-basket combat is something I usually need at least a day to mentally prepare for, just during normal time. I can't imagine what it was like when it was filled with people on a holiday anxiety buzz.

Flamethrowers. That might be the solution. Tasers, maybe?
